How do I clear my cache in Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge?

To speed things up and conserve communications bandwidth, browsers (e.g. Chrome, Firefox) attempt to keep local copies of pages, images, and other content you’ve visited, so that it does not need to be downloaded again later. Occasionally this caching scheme goes awry (e.g. the browser insists on showing out-of-date content) making it necessary to bypass the cache and force your browser to re-download a web page’s complete, up-to-date content.

In Chrome

On your keyboard, press the Ctrl button and F5 key at the same time

or,

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More.
  3. Click More tools and then Clear browsing data.
  4. At the top, choose a time range. To delete everything, select All time.
  5. Next to “Cached images and files,” check the box.
  6. Click Clear data.
  7. Close Chrome completely (all tabs), and re-open Chrome again to notice the effects of clearing your cache.

NOTE: There is no need to check off the Cookies and Browsing History boxes when clearing our cache. That could remove saved content and passwords from your computer.

How do students create or access their learning plan, and other forms?

Students have the ability to create and/or contribute to their learning plan or other forms such as WEAs, OYAP forms, etc.

The process for creating a form or plan is the same for students and teachers. The main difference being, students only see their own information whereas teachers have access to their entire class.

#1: Click on the Forms tab in Hour Republic to create a new form

NOTE: 
The student ID (or OEN) needs to be accurate in order for a student to access forms. If any issues arise, then please check student Settings and ensure that the OEN is accurate (enter the OEN with no dashes).

#2: Click Create Forms
Click on 1 form or several types of forms that you wish to create (e.g. check off Learning Plan, WEA and OYAP)

#3: Click the Create Forms button in the top right corner (if you haven’t already)

NOTE: 
If you don't have a semester or teacher associated with your account, you can set it by clicking the Edit button next to appropriate field. 

#4: Select your name, then click Next.

NOTE:
- ***If your teacher has already created a learning plan or form for you, then please skip this step (Step #4)
- If your teacher has already entered your course, employer, etc. for previous forms (e.g. WEA), then this information will automatically appear.
#5: Begin filling out or editing the form
We autofill your form with student data that was imported (shared by your school board's IT department)

 

#6: Each form will have the option to Add Course Details and/or Add Employer Details.

Click the Add button to view and select from a list of all the Ministry of Education courses. Click the Add button again to add multiple courses.

#7: Add the Employer information

There are 2 ways to add an employer. You can either search for an existing employer or add a new employer. Before adding a new employer, please ensure that you have searched for your employer first, in order to avoid duplicates.

Add an Existing Employer
The search bar is smart. If you type in a few letters, it will find a match. Once you have selected an employer, select the Contact and Student Position (i.e. Cashier).
Adding a New Employer
If you are unable to find an employer via a search, click the Add Employer button to create a new employer. You can follow this FAQ to add a new employer.

#8: Fill out the remainder of the form.

#9: Once the form is complete, you can either
– Save, Finish or Export PDF
– Print
– Sign electronically
– Email a request(s) for e-signatures
rECENT FORMS

All new forms that you or your teacher create for you will appear under Recent Forms (right-side of screen). Click on the plan or form you just created to Edit, Copy, Export or Delete.
