Step 2 – System Access 

At your first classroom session, you would have been given a printed sheet with some basic instructions. 

Your access will be activated within a few days of starting the classroom sessions of your YOUNG DRIVERS® program.  You will receive an email that will contain similar information to the sheet from class – please save that email! Once you received that email, your system access has been activated. 

Take a moment now and copy down your personal access information: 

User Name: ___________________________________________________________ 

Password: ____________________________________________________________ 

CogniFit Group Code: ___________________________________________________ 

CogniFit Registration Code: ______________________________________________ 
 
 

Please note the information you create on the CogniFit site: 

CogniFit User Name:  ____________________________________________________ 

CogniFit Password: ______________________________________________________ 

 

Step 3  - Log In   

The link to the e-Experience is:  http://elearnbox.yd.com/ilias3/login.php 

This is what your screen will look like: 

 
 

Enter User Name and Password that have been provided.  Click on “Submit”. 
 

NOTE:  If you are trying to use an unsupported browser, you will see: 
 

 
The FIRST time you log in you will be asked to read and acknowledge the User Agreement.  Use the scroll bar on the side to continue. Click “Submit” to accept.
 

 
 

 

 

Your screen will now look like this (after you have accepted the User Agreement, you will proceed immediately to this screen after logging in): 

 

Click on “2010-YOUNG DRIVERS e-Experience”. 

Your screen will now look like this: 

 

Click on “2010 e-Experience”.  
 

Your screen will now look like this: 

 
 

If you click on “Hide Tree” it will look like this: 

 
 

It is best to work in this mode.   
 
 

 

Note the information on the screen – F11 for full screen mode.  This is what full screen mode looks like: 

It simply gets rid of all of the windows tabs and tool bars that you may have visible during normal computer operation. 

Choose “Play Intro” or “Skip Intro”   - the introduction will play and it will take you right into Session 1 Segment 1 CogniFit New Driver. 
 

You will get to a screen that looks like this after a short video clip finishes.  Follow the on screen instructions (click the Next arrow to continue).  It is located on the bottom of the screen and will flash GREEN when you may continue.   

HINT:  If you can’t see the green flashing arrow, press F11 to go to full screen mode if this doesn’t work, go to Step 1 System Requirements and re check your screen resolution! 
 
 

 

Continue until you get to the last page of this segment (Page 17).  It will look like this: 

As the screen indicates, you must now complete the CogniFit assessment to complete the session.  Click on the “CogniFit icon” and a new screen will open: 
 

Choose “CogniFit New Driver” – click on the line that says “click here for CogniFit New Driver”.  Your screen will look like this:

 

Click “Start”.

 

Your screen will look like: 

 

Since this is the first time you will be logging in to the CogniFit site, please click on “New User”.   There will be some interim screens – follow the instructions onscreen (you must AGREE to the Terms and Conditions). 

You will end up at this page: 

 

Enter your Group and Registration codes (refer to Step 2 System Access) – these codes have been provided to you.  

Follow the instructions onscreen to create a User Name and Password for the CogniFit Site (space has been provided in Step 2 System Access for you to record this information).

Click “Close”  
 

Answer questions on the following screen:

Click “Continue”. 

You will see ‘loading’ on screen and after a few minutes, a tutorial will begin automatically – it will take you through 8 sections.

Once the presentation is complete, click “Continue”.

 

You will then be ready to begin your Baseline Assessment:

You will then be at the Task Instruction Introduction.  It will begin automatically – it will take you through 4 sections.  Listen carefully! 

Once the Task Instruction Introduction is complete, click “Continue”. 

You will then begin the assessment completed through a series of 17 Tasks.  

Click on the “Instructions” button to listen to or replay specific Task instructions, click “Start” to begin each Task. 

Once each task is completed, you will move automatically to the next Task. 

PLEASE COMPLETE ALL 17 TASKS BEFORE LOGGING OUT!  If you exit prior to completion of all 17 tasks NONE of your work will be SAVED! 
 
 
 
 

 

Once you have completed all 17 Tasks, you will see the following: 

 
 

Click “Next” to receive your Cognitive Abilities Ranking: 

 

NOTE:  This example has the numbers between 1 and 5 removed. 

YOU MUST PRINT THIS PAGE AND BRING IT TO YOUR CLASSROOM TEACHER! 

Click “Next”. 

You will then be shown your Cycle Goals – the improvement we expect in each Cognitive ability at the end of the first training cycle.  You may print this page for your records. 

Click “Next”. 
The following screen will confirm you have completed the REQUIRED Baseline Assessment:
 

 

You have now completed all the is REQUIRED on the CognifFit site.  Any of the training exercises on this site are OPTIONAL. 

Click on “Log Off”.  Confirm you wish to exit.  

You are not done yet… please keep reading! 

When you log out of the CogniFit site, your screen will look like this: 

 

You may have to move your mouse cursor to the top of the screen to get the tabs to show up.   

To close the CogniFit window click on the tab that says “Welcome to the Cognifit New Driv…” with the red X.

You will then be returned to Page 17 of 17 of Session 1 of the e-Experience.

Again, you may need to move your mouse cursor to the top of the screen to make the tabs visible.  When you move your mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen the tabs will disappear automatically. 

Click on the Right arrow to exit the session. 

Wait for the screen to load and press F11 to take the program OUT of full screen mode and your screen will look like this:

 

If you wish to continue to another e-Experience session, the program will automatically continue to Session 2 “The Driving Environment” once you click on either “Play Intro” or “Skip Intro”. 

If you wish to LEAVE the e-Experience session completely, you must follow these instructions EXACTLY! 

Close the tab that says “ILIAS SCORM 2004 Player” with the red X. You have not logged out yet.  Please continue to the next page! 

 

You will then be back at a window that looks like this: 

 

Click on the “Logout” button.  The following screen verifies you have logged out of the e-Experience successfully. 

 

To log in on another day, follow the log in instructions and the e-Experience will automatically take you to Session 2 “The Driving Environment”.  You will need to use F11 for full screen and “hide tree”. 

On the last page of each session, you will be notified that you have reached another Canadian city and you will have  the OPTION to return to the Cognifit site to complete another OPTIONAL training exercise, or proceed with another e-Experience session, or exit e-Experience completely. 

 

If you wish to use the OPTION to return to Cognifit to complete an OPTIONAL training session, click on the “Cognifit icon” and enter the User name and Password you have created to log in again.  Remember to use the correct log out instructions when you get to the end of your training session. 

Follow the previous instructions to log out of the e-Experience completely. 

The final section (Session 9, Segnment 2) of the e-Experience is a test!  The session will begin like all of the others.  When you have completed the test, you will see: 

 

This is NOT the end!  You must proceed to page 24 and exit appropriately to complete the session!  The final page of this session looks like this: 

 

You will know you have successfully completed the e-Experience when you see this screen (after clicking on the flashing green arrow): 

 

Use the same exit procedure (closing the says “ILIAS SCORM 2004 Player” window first, then Logout of ILIAS). 
 

Some helpful hints: 

- do not have multi tasks running at the same time

- do not leave the e-Experience unattended for any amount of time (it will time out and you will NOT be notified – any work you do after it has timed out will NOT register)

- NEVER use the STOP button on each screen (unless you want to leave without recording any work you have completed!)
