If you’re the first person from your school to share the course with students, there are three things you may want to ask your IT department.
#1: Whitelisting the Finding Focus email server
Some schools have restrictions in place to prevent students from receiving emails from unknown senders, which prevents students from being able to create accounts. To prevent this issue, ask your IT department to “whitelist” our email sender so that account creation emails aren’t blocked by your email server.
#2: Getting approval for the Finding Focus app for school tablets
Students can download our app on school-provided tablets by searching for “Finding Focus” in the App/Play Store. However, you may need to get approval from the IT Department in your district for the app to be available.
#3: Ensure your school’s internet filter doesn’t block our course
Our digital learning platform uses an embedded Wistia player to play the videos in our lessons and Daily Beats. Very few schools block this specific video provider, but if your school has strict internet filtering you may want to check with your IT department in advance of sharing the course with your students. If your school uses software that blocks Wistia on school devices, this would interfere with playback.
