What is FrogAcademy?

Available to: Frog Admin, Teachers, Students and Parents
The FrogAcademy is a one-stop dashboard that links to all your Frog and 1BestariNet related services in one page. As a student, you will discover a fun new way to learn because you can play games in between completing assignments, and by collecting points, you can personalize your avatar and ‘purchase’ new games.
All your FrogStore purchases can be seen at a glance in the ‘My Library’ section. Managing your Yes account is made simple with the useful account summary. You can also look up your teacher’s and your fellow student’s email addresses with the useful My School Address Book feature.
To access the FrogAcademy, click the Quick Launch in the Frog Bar.

Avatars

Each user of the Frog VLE has their own unique avatar. An avatar is a cartoon like figure that is a representation of you that others can see online. Initially this figure is just a simple outline and not very interesting. Additional features (body styles, accessories etc.) can be added, however, only a limited number of these are free. By completing assignments in the games based learning area in the Revision section, you can earn more FrogCredits required to buy more features to make your avatar more exciting.

Your Avatar
To manage your avatar, click on Edit Avatar.

 wifat013
To add a new feature or edit and existing feature of your avatar, select a category to view a list of items for that category group. You will notice that some of the items are free and you can add these without using up any of your FrogCredits. You will need to have the appropriate FrogCredits in the bank before adding items with a credit value against them.
Note: Adding items with a credit value will not use your FrogCredits immediately. You can experiment by adding any items and add them your basket. Your FrogCredits will only be spent when you visit the shopping cart and you decide to buy the items.
How do I get more FrogCredits?
Your students can earn extra credits by completing assignments in the Revision section. As a teacher, you can purchase extra FrogCredits from the Account section (see below) or from the FrogStore.
