Step 1 - Creating an account
Go to www.albert.io. Click Sign Up in the top-right corner.
Select I’m a teacher.
Fill in the requested information. (Note: If you have a Google account, you can use Google sign-in and skip the need to confirm your account.)
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 - Creating 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 aligned to the correct tutoring company (if you do not see your company please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the company’s name and address)
Click Create Class.
Your class is now created and you can start inviting students to join your class. Your class will appear on 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 license, assign work, and access data reports.
Create different Albert classes for either each student you educate or each subject your students study.
Tutoring singular students across various subjects? We suggest you create a single class for each student that includes all of the subjects they are studying. This way, you only give them access to the subjects they need and you can see all of their data in one place.
Tutoring multiple students in one subject? We suggest you create one classroom for all of your students.
Step 3 - 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.
Here’s how to invite your students, so you can assign practice and view their data:
In the Classes tab, click the “Invite Students” button for the desired class.
On Albert, there are three ways to enroll your students:
Class enrollment code
Import Google Classroom
*Please note, Options 1 and 2 will be the easiest student onboarding choice for tutors, as Option 3 requires a previously set up Google Classroom account.
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. If they have an account, they should log in at Albert.io.
Direct students to click on the Classes tab at the top of the page and click Join a Class and enter the code you have provided.
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 Manage Roster tab.
You can regenerate a classroom code by clicking on the information icon, as seen in the image below. Regenerating codes prevents students from sharing codes with other students and gaining access to your class. Please note: if you click the button Generate A New Code, only the newly generated code will work for students (your old classroom enrollment code will no longer work, but the students that used it to previously enroll will still be enrolled in your classroom).
Option 2 - 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, check out this article.
Select the Classes tab and select a class of your choice. Next, select the Invite Students button.
Click the Invite by email button.
A popup will appear. From here, you can either manually type in student emails (if you choose this route, separate student emails with either a comma or by pushing the return key), copy and paste student emails, 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 3 - Import Google Classroom
If you use Google Classroom, you can use the Google Classroom sync to import your roster and enroll your students. Go here to learn more about this option.
Step 4 - 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 here. With this option, you will decide what content the student will practice.
Independent Practice:If you want students to practice independently on Albert, you can unlock subjects for students in the Library tab. With this option, the student will be able to direct their own learning, but you also have the option of creating assignments.
After you've created or accepted an invitation for an Albert teacher account, created a class, and enrolled students, we suggest checking out these next steps:
Customized assignments: Learn how to select individual questions to create a customized assignment, called a folder.
Data insights: After giving your students an assignment, you'll have actionable student data to analyze. Here is more information on how to view and utilize student assignment data.
