Thrive Learning FAQ’s
Do I have to watch the videos in order from 1 to 10?
The modules have been designed to build on your skills development each week. For example, the Module 7 Fitness video might refer to exercises learnt in the Module 3 video, so it does help to watch them in order. However – you will be given all of the videos at the same time so if you prefer to watch them in a different order you can. It’s your choice!
How much does the Thrive Learning Program cost?
For a limited time, the Thrive Learning Program is being offered to all Endeavour Foundation customers as a free learning resource that can be completed independently at home.
I’m only interested in one of the three programs; do I have to do all three?
You can do as many or as few of these video modules as you like. If you only want to do cooking and music, fine. Or maybe you want to do all three – great! The choice is yours.
I can see the video, but I can’t hear it
There are two different places you can look to check if your volume on your computer is working. First, look for the volume button in the bottom left hand corner of the YouTube video screen – make sure the volume is not muted and turned right up. Secondly, check the volume on your computer by looking for the little speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner of your toolbar. Click on it and make sure it is turned up.
I don’t have a computer – can I watch the videos on a different device?
All the videos are accessible via a private YouTube channel. You can watch the videos on any smart device with access to the internet.
I don’t have a printer – can I still do the workbooks?
I’ve finished all three programs – what else can I do?
We are working on creating more exciting programs to add to Thrive Learning – we will send you more information about these in the coming months. In the meantime, have you had a chance to explore the Thrive Online Hub? It is full of fun, free downloadable resources made especially for people with intellectual disability. Visit our Thrive hub page to get started today!
What equipment do I need to participate in these programs?
You’ll need a smart device and an internet connection. If you have a smart device but don’t have access to the internet at home, you might be able to connect to public or guest WIFI at your local library or café.
The cooking modules require additional kitchen equipment and recipe ingredients – a full list of all required items can be found in the workbooks for each module.
There are 3 different learning areas – Music, Fitness and Cooking. Each program has 10 modules which include a 10-minute instructional video and supporting workbook and answer sheet.
