Our online learning platform
What is it?
The SmileWisdom e-learning platform is an on-line internet-based classroom environment that allows us to deliver classes across the Internet. Our e-learning environment uses video, shared screen presentations and interactive features to provide a rich and engaging learning experience.
E-Learning Platform Account:
You will be issued with a login ID for the e-learning platform. This will include an ID and a Password. The ID is usually your email account and the Password will be related to the course you are one. This will be issued to you via email when you join a course. If you forget your Password then just let us know and we will issue a Password reset request, which will be sent directly to your registered email address. Please be aware that we can ONLY send Password reset requests to your registered email account.
Accessing the E-Learning Platform:
There are two ways to access our e-learning platform, both approaches achieve the same thing and get you to the same place. The only difference is one uses our website and the other provides direct access, the choice of which works best for you is completely up to you.
How to access
1) Open a web browser and type www.smilewisdom.school-network.net into the “Address Bar”, it is important that you type this into the “Address Bar” and NOT the “Search” box for Google etc. This URL will get you directly to the on-line login screen.
2) Go to the SmileWisdom website and look for the E-Learning option on the navigational menu. This will take you to a login page for our e-learning platform. Once on this page, you will see two fields, one for you to enter your login ID and one for you then enter your login Password. See the image below.

If when you enter your details into the Username and Password boxes you get any of the details wrong you will be taken to the on-line login screen below, all you will then need to do is to re-enter your details. See the image below.
E-Learning Student Screen:
Once you have logged onto the e-learning environment you will see your e-learning Dashboard, this will display details of all courses that you are enrolled in and will also display the next scheduled Virtual Classes for you to attend.

Electa Live Download:
The first time you access a Virtual Classroom you will be asked to download the appropriate Electa Live app you can use just about any device that you have to access a Virtual Class.
