Notes:

  • There are some tips about logging in here that may help, before you move to resetting your password.
  • For security reasons, you cannot reset a password to be the same as one you’ve previously used!

Password issues usually fit into two categories:

The original invite email for a teacher has got trapped in a spam filter.
Thus they don’t have a password and can’t use the email password reset mentioned below.
An ADMIN must reset the Teacher’s password as per this support doc.

A student or teacher has forgotten their password.

There are three options for resetting passwords:

  1. an email reset for an Admin, teacher or student password
  2. for student passwords only, having a Teacher or Admin reset the password
  3. for teacher passwords only, having an Admin reset the password.

NOTE: if an ADMIN has lost their password and can’t use an email reset, they must contact us.
