To access the adoption learning center on the Creating a Family website:
Hopscotch clients can access the adoption education courses by going to the learning center at http://www.creatingafamily.org/learning-center.html
Each individual will need to create an account with a username and password (see the blue link in the upper right hand corner of the webpage for creating a new account)
Once you have logged in with you individual username and password you'll have access to listen to all the courses - for FREE!
As a sponsoring agency, our clients have access to the quiz/certificate option for each course. You'll just need to click on the quiz icon next to a particular course listing. You'll then be prompted for a course password that is unique to Hopscotch clients. You'll need to contact Megan for your password to receive your certificate after completion of each podcast and quiz. Be sure to print your certificate after each podcast quiz.
Here's a podcast sample:
