10 Tips For Accessing LifeJourney’s Online Programs

LifeJourney has a range of free online programs designed to help Australian students Y7-12 explore careers in STEM. Follow these easy tips to take advantage of the opportunity.

  1. If someone is new to LifeJourney, they can either visit either (https://dayofstem.com.au/) or (https://asdcyberexp.com.au/) to sign-up for a program.
  2. For teachers, they should select the “Universities/Schools” option so they can access the instructor dashboard. Students can sign-up individually, but we don’t recommend that if the program is being done in the context of a school. 
  3. Follow the two email prompts and create an account using email address and password combination. Some people get stuck here as emails sometimes go into SPAM. 
  4. If you’ve already created an LifeJourney account, you can visit https://au.golifejourney.com/lifeJourney/login to login anytime. 
  5. Instructor Dashboard – this is the key starting point for teachers. From here you can provide students with sign-up instructions and a unique rego code which lets you track their progress. Within the instructor dashboard you can access “student mode” to preview the program, access the class resources, track student progress, switch to another program, FAQs, etc. 
  6. Once a teacher is ready to assign the student a program to complete, they’ll need to provide individual students with the link and unique code found in their dashboard. A student then creates their own account with an email and password combination, which they can login from anytime. The only instance someone would ever need a rego code is a student being assigned a program by a teacher. 
  7. Each program takes approximately 60-90 minutes to complete and focuses on a specific set of mentors, unique simulation/exercise and field trips/challenges.
  8. Each student needs an internet connection, desktop/laptop/tablet and email address. We recommend headphones if done in a group context. 
  9. There is an online teacher professional development module, Cyber Teacher, available through the instructor dashboard of the ASD/Optus programs. In 2019, we combined our in person workshops and this online module into a 5-hour NESA registered program. Please visit the following page to learn more: https://dayofstem.org/professional-learning/2020-cyber-teacher-virtual-workshop-series/
