In this video, we will give you an overview of how to use the Nagwa Study app.
If you have not yet downloaded the Nagwa Study app, we encourage you to do so, as you can then receive notifications of any new assessments or other work given to you by your teachers. You can download the app by searching for it directly on the App Store, Google Play Store, or HUAWEI AppGallery, or you can head over to www.nagwa.com/en/apps and click through to the download page from there.
Once you have downloaded the app, you’ll need to sign in using the username given to you by your teacher. If you have only just received your username and have not yet set your password, after submitting your username, you will be asked to create and confirm your password. If you’ve already completed this step, input your password and log in.
If at any point you forget your password, ask one of your teachers to reset it for you, and the next time you log in, you’ll have the option of picking a new password.
For this video, we will be giving a general overview of how to use the Nagwa Study app and showcasing all of the different features available to you. Note that many of the features in the Nagwa Study app are very similar to the mobile view of the portal, so if you are familiar with this, the transition from the portal to the app should be relatively easy.
Once you’re logged in, you’ll see your dashboard. This gives you a summary of your portal activities and your progress, including information and shortcuts to assessment reports, exam assessment reports, and worksheet reports. You can also see a visual summary for each category in the statistics section of the dashboard.
Along the bottom of the screen, you’ll see a toolbar that allows you to navigate between the different portal pages. The first icon, which will be currently highlighted in blue, is the dashboard.
To start working on any assignments you have been given, click the second icon in the toolbar. You will then see two different types of assignments: assessments and exams. If you click on either of these two options, you’ll see any open or closed assignments that have been assigned to you.
Assessments are created by your teacher for you to complete. There are two types of assessments. A normal assessment has no time limit and can be completed at any point between the start and due dates, and a quiz is a special type of assessment that has a time limit. That is, once you start the assessment, you have a time limit in which to complete it. This means you should make sure you are ready before you begin!
One small difference between the portal via a browser and via the Nagwa Study app is that you will not find an option for “Sessions” in Nagwa Study. To attend sessions on your mobile device, either download our dedicated Nagwa Connect app for Students or sign in to the portal via a browser.
Next, we’ll look at the “Classes” page, which is accessed by clicking the third icon. On this page, you’ll be able to see each of the classes that you are associated with. Clicking on the classes gives you access to the class wall.
The class wall allows you to watch videos and download any files that your teacher has shared with the class. You can also add comments to any of the existing posts on the class wall. This allows you to send replies or follow-up questions on any of the posts your teacher has added.
You’ll also notice there is a “Files” section at the top of each class wall . This gives a summary of all the files your teacher has uploaded here. You’ll need to return to the class wall to view any videos, but this menu lets you quickly search for and download files.
The class wall is a great way for your teacher to communicate with your class, so be sure to check it regularly!
Now, let’s look at the “Courses” page, which is accessed by clicking the fourth icon. Here, you’ll see the courses that your teachers have assigned to any of your classes. Just click on one of the course thumbnails to see the entire list of lessons associated with the course. You can work through these lessons independently or as directed by your teacher.
Click on one of the lessons to view the lesson page and all of the associated material. Two of the core components for each lesson are the lesson video and the worksheet. The lesson video teaches you the core content for the lesson topic, and the worksheet provides you with a way to practice your skills and receive instant feedback on a wide variety of questions ranging in difficulty. We recommend watching the lesson videos first and then practicing the worksheets.
Some lessons will also have additional resources, such as explainers and presentations. Generally speaking, these resources provide different ways to learn, or extra details on the lesson topic.
Another feature of the Nagwa Study app is the global search at the top right of the page.
This feature can be used to navigate to a particular lesson, by typing keywords in the search box. For example, we could search for the words “volume” and “sphere” to find the lesson “Volumes of Spheres”.
The final icon on the toolbar takes you to your downloads. This is a handy page that allows you to access any of your previous downloads.
