B) Student access
Via Hour Republic:
If student OENs are provided to Hour Republic before student sign ups, and the OEN matches our records, then the student gains automatic access to Hour Republic.
If a student is accessing Hour Republic via D2L, then the OEN automatically gets transferred over. Students that register for the first time via D2L automatically gain access to Hour Republic, and never have to register again.
C) Students navigate to their Settings
When logged in, students can click on the arrow beside their name (top-right), and select Settings from the drop-down menu.
(i) Select “Placement Dashboard” as the default dashboard from the Default Page drop-down field (near the bottom of the Settings page).
(ii) Next, select the tab (left-side of page)
Once on the Placement page, enter the Minimum Required Hours (to set the progress bar)
Fill-in the relevant Employer information such as Name of the company, supervisor email address and phone number (this auto-populates the weekly log form)
