Training via Rebel Toolkit and Rebellion Academy
XR uses a lot of different tools and platforms!
The Hub, Mattermost, UK Cloud, Rebel Toolkit, Rebellion Academy etc. The different platforms have evolved over time and been created by different teams. We know this can be confusing but we recommend rolling with it and with regular use, you'll build familiarity.
Rebel Toolkit (RT)
The Rebel Toolkit is an online library of resources where rebels can find information on how to make and do a huge range of things within the XR movement, from creating banners to writing mandates for teams. You're on it right now!
In the Foundation Programme Course Schedule, you are asked to read:
Rebellion Academy (RA)
The Rebellion Academy is our online learning platform, offering interactive modules about all things XR that you can work through at your own pace, where you can crank your activism up to 11! It's a different platform from the Hub and doesn't link back to your Course Schedule; so please remember to tick modules completed on the schedule.
The Rebellion Academy modules included in the Foundation Programme are listed on your Course Schedule form, but of course, you can do any of the others that interest you.
You can find more advice on using the Rebellion Academy here.
- Users are asked to set up an account.
If you have already joined the Hub, your Rebellion Academy account will automatically have been created using the same login details. Having an account and log-in means you can leave a training at any point and come back to it easily. It also means you can track which ones have been completed and which ones have sections still to be done. Every time you finish a training, you get a badge; okay, it’s virtual, but it’s still an achievement!
When you go to the Rebellion Academy, select the option XR HUB LOGIN (see below).
