  • Lt student invitation template

  • Student experience - login and exploration
    An introductory video for students. You may want to share this video with your students at the same time you invite them.

Publishing checklist

See here for a more in-depth checklist before publishing and making content available to students. Some key points to note are:

  • The content is up-to-date and ready to be accessed by students
  • You’ve decided if the lesson will be published individually or in a module
  • The lesson has a poster (thumbnail) icon
  • Once published, the lesson is available to students at the correct date(s) and time(s).
    • I’ve selected ‘Student View’ and can see the content I expected is available to the students.

Before publishing content, consider if the content is best published as a stand-alone lesson or as one of a series of related lessons in a module. For example, a lesson introducing the course would likely be best published by as a stand-alone lesson. However, a pre-lab quiz lesson that precedes an associated lab would be best published within a module.

Note: It’s very important to only publish a lesson either individually or within a module. If a lesson is published both as an individual lesson and a lesson within a module, students can start and complete them separately.

CSM overview with Arianna Boulet

We work proactively with our customers throughout the Lt onboarding process to better understand their needs and learning objectives when it comes to teaching. From here we can work alongside our customers from the beginning to ensure that each individual is achieving their goals and making the most of Lt’s innovations.

Arianna Boulet

Arianna Boulet (North America)

I graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Integrative Physiology from the University of Colorado. As a CSM, I love working with passionate instructors who truly care about their students. Being able to help such innovative educators makes loving my job that much easier!

My favorite Lt feature is how easy it is to author. I think it is important for instructors to be able to customize the content to fit around their course and learning objectives, and Lt makes this very easy for them.

Gabrielle Leite (South America)

I’m a Biologist graduated from UNESP- Rio Claro and I did my master’s degree in Comparative Physiology at UFSCar- São Carlos. I started working at ADInstruments in 2012 as an Application Scientist and since then I have taken on a more supportive role for our customers in Brazil and Latin America.

What I like most about Lt is its authoring tool and how easy it is to use! I love being able to offer educators a quality solution to the problems they face every day.

Liam Farley

Liam Farley (Australasia)

I did my undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Physiology before joining the ADI team in 2015. What I enjoy most about being a CSM is working with a customer to help them overcome a particular pain point.

I love that Lt does a lot of the heavy lifting for educators, in the sense that it has so much quality content already available.

Tom Broughton

Tom Broughton (Europe)

I graduated in 2008 with a BSc in Chemistry, and joined ADInstruments’ Support Team in October 2009, assisting customers in both research and education, but I have focused solely on education support since 2013, including providing support for LabStation and Lt, as well as their associated hardware, and haven’t looked back since!

In terms of Lt, I love the intuitiveness (and speed) of the software as well as the ease of authoring - it’s a huge time saver for educators.
