How do I instruct students on how to log in on their own?
First, instruct your students to access the internet using a browser that best supports our courses:
Next, make sure they are typing directly into the address bar of their browser and not the search bar:
To log in to their student account:
- You will need to give each student the school's special website that looks similar to this: www.essentialed.com/start/schoolname.
- Go to the school’s website address.
- Enter their email (or username) and password. If they can’t remember their password, have them click the Forgot password? link.
- Click the Log In button.
Make sure that students enter their email address correctly and choose an email address that only they can access. If they log out and forget their password, they'll need to be able to access their email to get back into their Essential Education account.
