Teach Your Class Online, It's Free! Hannaian Open University (HOU) allows any teacher, institution, organization, school, church, corporation or other entity to utilize the SchoolGenes platform and facilities to deliver their course, mini-course, class, presentation, or training program online to a group of students or audience. In other words, anyone can have their own online classroom on SchoolGenes.com under Hannaian Open University. HOU is the Hannaian Research Institute's commitment to promoting education and learning in recognition of the United Nations campaign for International Technology Transfer designed to assist developing communities and countries. Parties utilizing the Hannaian Open University may utilize the full facilities of SchoolGenes.com free of charge so long as they follow the applicable HOU terms and guidelines. HOU courses/classes/tutorials/training sessions do not have to comply with the standards and requirements of HRI Certified Courses.

HOU services are available entirely free to a wide variety of individuals or entities for teaching and training activities such as college courses & study groups, high school, middle, and elementary school courses and tutorials, sunday school classes, bible study groups, small company employee training sessions, coroporate and professional training, continuing education, community education, day care schooling, home schooling, and more. The SchoolGenes platform is extremely flexible and interactive and Users of HOU can design their course, class, or training program in any format they choose.

Registrants utilizing HOU to teach or train a group online must consult with HOU administration if they intend to charge fees to the students or trainees.

Setting Up An Online Course, Class, Tutorial, or Training Session

Teachers/Instructors setting up their course, class, tutorial, or training sessions on SchoolGenes can use any format they desire. Some assistance can be obtained by emailing the Hannaian I.T. Team at hri@hannaian.com, or by viewing open and available courses/classes already online at SchoolGenes.

Generally the class developer will first create a group to house the course/class and place the general information and links to important information under the Group General Description. Groups are created by clicking the "Courses/Groups" link on the general menu and then clicking on the "Create a new group" link. Open University Groups can not be "Featured Groups". Featured Groups are reserved for HRI Certified Courses unless a special arrangement is made with SchoolGenes administration.

The course/group can be developed as a draft initially before publishing so that the instructor can work on developing and integrating the course privately over time, before making it public by fully publishing it. This provides course developers with the option and important capability of working on the course, building and revising it within the SchoolGenes system, until fully ready for use by students.

After creating the Course/Group, the Course Syllabus/Outline can be placed in its own Group page with links to the various modules. Usually a well designed class will be organized in modules each covering important sections of the course. These modules can be placed in their own individual group pages in the Group Page section of the Group. Links to each module should be placed in the Course Syllabus/Outline page. Other Group sections can be used to deliver other important parts of the class including discussions, blogs, photos, videos and other important functional needs of the class. For ease of use and increased facility the course developer should develop the written copy of the text needed for the class in a word processor such as Microsoft word and transfer them by cutting, copying and pasting them into the various sections of the Group as needed.

Students can be admitted to enroll in the Course/Class/Training Session Group either by invitation, upon their request to join, or by setting the group permissions function to open which allows any registrant of SchoolGenes to join on their own.
