Getting Started: Students

So you’re just starting out with your student account and need some tips. You’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together a brief step-by-step tutorial for you, and here it is!

Step 1:  Sign In

The first step is to sign in to your LessonLogs account. Mouse over or click the Sign In button near the top right corner of our website. Enter your username and password provided by your teacher and click the Sign In button.

Step 2: Take a look at the tutorial.

When you sign into LessonLogs for the first time as a student, you will see a brief tutorial on how to add a practice log. It will take you through step by step explaining how to create a practice log and give you some examples of what sorts of comments you could make.

Step 3. Add your first Practice Log!

When adding your first practice log you’ll need to select your date and time, rate how you feel you did during this practice, add items that you practiced, comment on those items and then add a note or question that came up during practice. Your teacher will see your practice logs and be able to help you out if you enter a question.

Step 4. Activity: Practice Logs

Once you add a practice log, it will show up in the Activity area. In the Activity area you will see two tabs; “Practice Logs” and “Lesson Logs”. Your newly added practice log will appear as the first item in your practice log stream. Each new practice log you add will be placed at the top of this stream.

Step 5. Edit a Practice Log

If you made a mistake or just decide you need to edit something, find your log in the Activity area for practice logs and click it. The practice log will expand allowing you to view all the details of this practice. Simply edit the log and press the save button when you’re done.

Step 6. Personal Stats

After adding a few practice logs you’ll begin to see some useful information in the “Last 2 Weeks” section. Your stats will continually be calculated based on the practice for the 2 week period. In this section you will be able to see your average Minutes Per Practice (MPP) and your average practice log rating. The last item you see in this section is a small graphical representation of your practice time per day. Use these statistics to help judge if you’re practicing consistently and how those practices are going.

Step 7. View Your Lessons

When your teacher gives you a lesson you’ll be able to see them in your Lesson Logs stream in the Activity area. You’ll be able to see the details of your lesson by clicking it. Take a look at your last lesson before each practice to get a quick refresher on what you need to work on.
