The Pre-registration Tutorial

The Academic Advisement Center (AAC) just launched a Pre-registration Tutorial for the Fall 2014 cohort of first-year students entering the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering. This online multimedia resource is designed to educate new students on the registration process, highlighting the conceptual and technical information connected to their enrollment activities.

This application presents information to students utilizing a gaming approach.  It consists of eight panels of information, each containing different missions that students must complete. Students are invited to watch information videos, access apps to answer relevant questions and browse through PDF documents.  There is a 1-question quiz on every panel that students must answer to proceed to the next panel. Students are also directed to our learning management system, NYU Classes, for a cumulative quiz on the topics covered. The tutorial is available 24/7 -- students can access it at their leisure, from a variety of geographic locations.

This application was produced by AAC and FITL.
