The Quia Online Workbook

If you experience problems that your professor cannot solve, please address an email message to the Quia technical representatives at bookhelp@quia.com

1.  Finding the Quia Online Workbook

Three possibilities:

  1. From your Internet browser: type the URL (http://books.quia.com/books) into the address window of your browser and press "Enter".

  2. In the Language Learning Center (LLC): locate  French / Internet / French 2 /Horizons Quia Workbook and double-click on that line.

  3. From the Mt.SAC Horizons website: Go to the "Homework" page and click on the link Quia Website under the heading "Extra Credit Homework"

2.  Signing In

Type the following URL into the address field of your browser: http://books.quia.com/books

Two steps are then necessary to sign in:

  1. Create a Quia account, i.e. become a registered Quia site user by filling out a short questionnaire. Write down the username and password that you have chosen for yourself because you will need them every time you want to use the Quia Online Workbook.

  1. Register in your particular French class with two separate access numbers: 

  1. For this you need the very long, personal book key that you acquired with your textbook or that you bought separately.Enter your personal access key into the field labeled "Enter book key".

  2. To register for the right class (right professor, right day and time), you also enter the class code that you receive from your professor, together with detailed instructions on how to sign on. Click the "My Books" tab. Select the "Horizons" book and click "Options". Select "Enroll in an instructor's course". Enter the class code, then choose your class (if your instructor teaches two French 1 classes).

There is a "floating chart" with accented characters available for exercises that require writing in French so that you do not have to create the accented characters yourself.  It is located at the bottom of the exercise page and it is "anchored". To make it "float" click on it. You can then drag it to wherever you need it on the page. Click on the accented character that you need and it "jumps" to where your cursor blinks.

Once you start doing online homework, the Quia database registers everything you have done. Both you and your professor can "see" the progress that you are making, working your way through the competencies and chapters.
bullet

 

bullet

For each competency there are several oral exercises marked "O" (for oral) and several written exercises marked "E" (for écrit).

bullet

An asterisk marks exercises that you have done more than once. Your instructor will keep only the exercises with the highest success rate.

bullet

Your personal access key is valid for three semesters, meaning that, if necessary, you can take three semesters to study French 1 and French 2 without incurring extra costs.
