The following directions are directed at your students.
You can copy and paste the directions and then share them directly with students on your Learning Management System (Google Classroom, Schoology, Canvas, etc.), via email, or on your class website.
Step 1: Directing students to create an account
Note: If students have a Google or Clever account, they should use Clever or Google sign-in and skip confirming their account via email.
How to create an account
Go to www.albert.io. Click Sign-Up in the top-right corner.
Fill in the required information (the boxes with red stars).
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 - Directing students to join your class
How to join your Albert class when your teacher has sent an email invitation
Find the email from Albert. Check with your teacher to see which email address has been invited.
Click the link in the email. You will be brought to www.albert.io.
Log in with the same email that has been invited.
Look for the new class in your Classes tab.
Click Accept to join the class.
How to join your Albert class when your teacher uses Google Classroom sync
Go to www.albert.io.
Log in to Albert using the same email that you use for Google Classroom or use the Google Single Sign-On.
Look for your classes in your Classes tab. You will already be enrolled in the class.
How to join your Albert class with the class enrollment code
After logging into Albert, click on the Classes tab at the top of the page
Click on the Join Class button in the top right corner
Finally, add your unique class code: INSERT YOUR CLASS CODE HERE (the class code is case sensitive)
Note: Teachers can find their unique class code on the Classes tab by clicking the INVITE STUDENTS button and the Display class code button.
[Pro-tip]: When inviting students via emailed invitation or Google Classroom sync, students that already have an Albert account can accept the invitation directly on Albert and will appear as "enrolled." Students listed as "invited" must create their Albert accounts to accept the invitation.
