As an administrator, how do I set up teacher accounts?

There are two ways to set up teacher accounts on your site licence. You can either give an activation key to teachers to have them create their own accounts, or you can create their accounts from the Account management tab.

Using an activation key

To have your teachers use the activation key for account setup, click Licence info on the Account management tab. In the Subscription information section, the activation key and teacher activation instructions are found under Teacher account setup. Select Print for a PDF of instructions to print out and distribute to teachers, or Email to send the instructions to your teachers by email. When teachers use the activation key to create their usernames and passwords, their information will automatically be added to your subscription.

Using the Account management tab

To create an account for a teacher, hover over the Roster tab, and select Teachers from the drop-down menu. Then, click Add new teacher. Enter the teacher’s information, and click Submit when finished. The teacher will receive an email with their username, password and instructions on how to get started on IXL.

You can also upload a list of teachers, instead of entering their information individually. To start, select Upload roster from the Roster drop-down menu. If you'd like detailed instructions, please check out our Set up your account roster quick-start guide.
