Welcome to your new class! We’re glad you’re here, and we want to make sure you have a smooth and successful transition to online learning. Your first step is logging into your course. You should get your login information from your teacher either directly or by email.

Make sure you use either Chrome or Firefox as your browser.

Type in your username and password, and press Login. If you’ve forgotten your password, don’t worry! Just click Forgot Password and enter your username.

Always make sure to keep your password secure, and never tell it to anybody.

This is the student app. You can think of it as a homeroom for all your classes. Let’s take a look around.

In the Courses tab, you can see all your current classes, plus your progress and score so far.

Click the To-Do list to see what graded activities you have coming. The Activity Stream gives you an updated list of graded work, announcements, and more.

Click the hamburger button to open the main menu. Here you can check out your grades, view class notes, communicate with your teacher, keep pace with your calendar, or return to the main Student App.

One of the first things you need to do when you login is to set up your email so you can communicate with your teacher more easily. On the top navigation bar, you will see your name. Click here and pick Settings.

Make sure your email is correct, then choose Send Code. Check your inbox, then enter the code into the popup window and select Verify.

While you’re here, take a second to update your profile picture, and set up custom notifications to make sure you stay on top of your course.

Select Save when you’re done. Now you’re all logged in and enrolled in your class, and ready to start learning!
