Accessing Course Content

All Beacon courses are online and self-paced to a certain extent (see Policies). Districts may supplement Beacon content with their own content. If a district requires the use of supplemental materials, your course facilitator will provide them to you.

You can access all courses from your Dashboard page. Your Dashboard may include details for upcoming assignments or messages from your facilitator.

  • Log in to Beacon Educator at;
  • Select your name on the top right side of the screen to display the tools menu;
  • Select Dashboard from the tools menu. The Dashboard page shows all current enrollments, preview sections (if applicable), and pending registrations.
  • Select the course you want to access. Note: You cannot access course content for Pending Registrations. Reach out to the listed contact person for assistance with pending registrations;
  • On first access, the system will prompt you to sign the policy statement electronically. Enter your full name in the text box provided and click Accept. Note: Beacon will not ask for credit card information from this page. If your browser prompts you for your credit card information, you may have activated a browser-specific setting on another site. Do not provide any credit card information. Ignore the message, enter your name, and click Accept to complete the electronic signature.

You now have access to the course content. If the start date for the course is a future date, you will not be able to access the summatives until the start date.
