How to Access Rebellion Academy
What is Rebellion Academy?
It is a learning environment of trainings that you can work through, in your own time, including audio versions you can listen to, for example while out walking. New trainings are constantly being created, and if there is anything you feel is missing please contact us.
If is not a calendar of trainings, or a place for networking. There are live trainings available in XR, but the Academy is for you to learn in your own time and at your own pace, and where Rebels can catch up on bits of training they have missed.
What's the difference between Rebellion Academy and the Toolkit?
Academy: a learning environment, with videos and interactive trainings,
Toolkit: a collection of web pages, like a Wiki, with links to resources.
Some information may be shared in both, but if you want to ensure you have completed a training (e.g. NVDA), then the Academy is the place to go. If you are looking for information or links, start with the Toolkit.
First time using Rebellion Academy?
The first training you might like to do is 'What type of Rebel are you?' to find out what trainings we have for you. Or you may already know about Action, Movement, Grassroots, and Supporter and wish to view details about courses suitable for each one.
The main page is the 'Dashboard' where you can access trainings, search for information, see what courses you have completed, get help etc. This section lets you filter trainings by type, e.g. 'LOCAL GROUPS' will show you all trainings suitable for Local Group members.
You can also see a full list of trainings, or search for a particular one.
Do I need to sign up?
Some courses are available to anyone without sign up, but most are for Rebels so you will need to Sign Up or Login.
