Step 1 - Creating an Account
Note: If your administrator sent you an invite to create your account on Albert, click the link in that email. You can then skip to Step 2 since your admin already did the heavy lifting!
How to Create an Account
Select I’m a teacher.
Fill in the requested information.
A confirmation email will be sent to you. Use the link in the email to confirm your account, then follow the on-screen prompts to activate your account.
Step 2 - Explore your Subject
From the Library tab, use one of three methods to explore content most relevant to you:
Take the Discover Quiz: A three question survey will highlight subjects relevant to you based on your subject area, grade level and practice needs.
Browse the Content Domain: Use the left-hand sidebar to select your content domain and view all relevant subjects.
Use the Search Bar: If you know the specific subject you are looking for, such as Algebra 1, use the search bar to quickly find your subject.
Step 3 - Creating a Class
How to create a class:
Log into your Albert account and click the Classes tab at the top of your page.
Click New Class in the top right corner.
Create a name for your class, and ensure you are associated with the correct school.
Click Create Class.
Your class is now created and you can start inviting students to join your class. Your class will appear under your Classes tab under "Active".
Creating a class is the key to getting started on Albert. Classes allow you to grant students access to your school license, assign work, and access data reports.
Most teachers name their classes after the period number and/or the subject of the class.
Create different Albert classes for each class section so that you can analyze data by class.
Step 4 - Inviting or Enrolling Students
At this point, you should have your Albert account and your classroom(s).
If you haven’t created your Albert account, please go back to Step 1.
If you haven’t set up your classroom(s), please go back to Step 2.
In the Classes tab, click the Invite Students button for the desired class.
On Albert, there are four ways to enroll your students:
Class enrollment code
Import Google Classroom
Import from LMS
Option 1 - Class enrollment code
You can view your unique class enrollment code by selecting Display class code on your Classes tab. Next, you'll need to provide your students with the unique class code so they can enroll in your class.
Instruct students to complete the following steps:
Create an account if they don't already have one, preferably using their school emails. If they have an account, they should log in at Albert.io.
Direct students to click on their Classes tab at the top of the page and click Join a Class.
Once they've successfully joined your class, they will see a green box that says "Success!". You can confirm that the student has successfully joined your classroom by viewing the Enrolled students on your People subtab.
You can regenerate a classroom code by clicking the Generate a new code label. After selecting this label, only the newly generated code will work for students (your old classroom enrollment code will no longer work).
Option 2 - Import Google Classroom
If you use Google Classroom, you can use the Google Classroom sync to import your roster and enroll your students.
Option 3 - Email invitations
This method sends your students an email invite to join your class. Students can then either log-in and accept the invite directly on Albert or click the link in the email they receive. If students aren't receiving Albert emails, you may need to connect with your admin to add Albert to your school's allow-list.
Click the Invite by email button.
A popup will appear. From here, you can either manually type in student emails, copy and paste student emails from a spreadsheet, or upload a CSV with student emails. When finished, click Send invitations.
Direct your students to follow the account set-up instructions in the email.
Option 4 - Import from LMS
If your school uses a compatible Learning Management System, such as Canvas, you can import your LMS roster. Connect with your administrator if you are unsure whether your school has set up an integration with your LMS and Albert.
Step 5 - Creating practice opportunities for students
There are two ways for students to practice on Albert: assignments or independent practice.
Create an Assignment: Creating an assignment grants students practice on specific skills, standards, or content, discover how to easily create your first assignment.
Independent Practice: If you want students to practice independently on Albert, you can unlock subjects for students in the subjects tab.
After you've created or accepted an invitation for an Albert teacher account, created a class, and enrolled students, we suggest these next steps:
