Quick Start Guide

An Educator account has many of the features of a Regular account, but is customized to manage classes and students with an emphasis on privacy, and data portability.

Educator accounts are able to create classes, sign-up Students, and review Student work. Each class you create has its own dashboard with tools to review student work
 (Picture Books, Longform Books, and Poetry) and activity (Comments), as well as administer Student accounts. 

If you have not done so already, start by signing up for a free Educator account
