First-Year Orientation

We are seeking to partner with universities who are interested in using OpenMind on a broader scale on their campus. OpenMind can be a valuable addition to first-year orientation, or it can be assigned to incoming students as part of their summer common read.

We are eager to work with you to customize OpenMind to fit the specific needs of your community. To learn more, please contact us at openmind@heterodoxacademy.org.

Use OpenMind in Your Classroom

To begin using OpenMind in your classroom, follow these two easy steps:

Try out the full “administrator” version of OpenMind. This version differs from what your students will experience in the following ways: (1) You won’t need to create a username and password, (2) You can skip the pre-assessment survey, and (3) You can move around across the steps without completing each one.
In order to begin using OpenMind with your students, you will need to create a unique access code for your classroom or campus. This link will enable you to create as many access codes as you like and will provide you with instructions on how your students can begin using OpenMind.
