Getting Started

WELCOME TO NOVA,

Your first steps as a new NOVA student are to become familiar with the following videos. It will give you an
overview of the three main resources you will use in all your classes: MICROSOFT TEAMS, CLASSLINK and OTUS.

Please complete these videos on important skills, such as how to access your classes, log in to a class meeting,
use Otus to find your teachers' lessons and assessments, etc.


MICROSOFT TEAMS:
**Note that the Teams App is already loaded on your device and should open when you log in. If it doesn't just
open, you can find it under your start (Microsoft icon) in the bottom left of the screen, under Microsoft Teams.

CLASSLINK:

ClassLink is a site that houses all your apps for classes. It also helps you avoid signing into a thousand sites. You sign in once to ClassLink and it will sign you into the rest.

1. Open website www.nsd131.org
2. Click on STUDENT PORTAL
3. Click on CLASSLINK (I suggest you bookmark this page for easy reference.)
4. Sign in using your SCHOOLID#@nsd131.org and your device password
5. You will see a variety of apps you may be using for a lot of your course work.
 
 
OTUS:

**Note that you can access OTUS through your ClassLink or you can get there by typing into your web browser:

   as a new students to a class. Just talk to the teacher to
   find out what you need to work on.
