Pearson Connexus is made up of six basic parts:
- The Parent Domain is the command center. Roles, permissions, courses, and resources are managed at the parent domain level. The Parent Domain is an easy way of saying everything on Pearson Connexus for one particular school.
- Subdomains are domains within another domain and can have all the elements of a regular domain. For example: elementary subdomain, high school subdomain, etc.
- Courses should be added to the parent domain first.
- Use them to:
- Prepare the space for users (Teachers, students, Parents, graders, etc.,). This consists of authoring and importing content and activities, organizing them for easy and effective engagement for users, and configuring parameters (e.g., course dates, due dates, guiding standards and objectives, passing criteria, grading rubrics, etc.).
- Facilitate learning, curriculum completion, personalization, collaboration, and communication.
- Use them to:
- Courses should then be copied from the parent domain to the subdomain.
Use these subdomain copies to:
- Grade activities, assess progress and mastery, provide individualized intervention, and aggregate data for analysis and continued improvement.
- Users are individuals who exist in a domain and can be assigned roles and permissions, and be enrolled in courses.
- Enrollments connect users with courses and define the roles and permissions they have. Enrollments is also commonly used to refer to the students within a course.
- The Library houses shared content; it can give course authors access to licensed content and content created by authors within the same domain or other domains. (If your school has added content to the Library.)
