This magic portal opens a world of content that allows you to partner with parents and empower small group leaders to reach the next generation with creative resources, teaching scripts, parent CUEs and small group content. And if you are like most of us, you go in, download what you need and then go on to the next task on your to do list.
But wait just a second . . . we want to let you in on a few “hacks” to help you make the most of your XP3 Students subscription.
NAME: We call the place where you download files the “download matrix.” It’s not because we’re obsessed with the 90s and Keanu Reeves, but it’s the place the Orange curriculum teams load all the content to make it available to our partners.
ENVELOPE: Want to message your Orange Specialist? You can do it through the download matrix. Simply click on the envelope icon, type out your message, and it will be sent to your assigned Orange Specialist. Everyone has one.
GEAR: Want to make changes to your account? Click on the gear icon.
You can add additional primary or secondary users.
You can view of history of what’s been downloaded.
NEWS: This is the first thing you see when you log into your account, but make sure you don’t’ rush past it. In the news section, we posts updates as needed, additional instructions you may need for curriculum, scoop on Orange events and contents. Also, make sure you check out the archive list on the side.
SEASON TABS: In addition to the News tab, there are five additional tabs. Two of these tabs are our “season” tabs each containing three months of curriculum both for now and the next quarter. You are free to choose what XP3 series you want to teach, but if you want to follow along with our scope and cycle, the season tabs provides that plan.
TRAINING TAB: The training tab contains resources to help you, your communicators and your volunteers implement the Orange strategy in your student ministry.
BONUS TAB: Don’t miss this! Every quarter, we give you free videos, podcast and links to some of the best resources available.
TIME’S ALMOST UP: Wondering when your account is up for renewal? We’ll let you know when it’s almost time. Just look for this notice in the top right corner.
