How to Invite Students to ESL Library Digital (using an email address)
If you are a teacher using ESL Library Digital, please follow the steps below to learn how to invite students to your account. Students will receive an invitation sent to their email.
Log in to your account here:
Once logged in to your account, click on Class Prep then select My Classes.
When you land on the My Classes page, you will see a list of all your classes and students. You can select a class to invite students to.
Note: By clicking on the Invite Students button, you will invite students individually without inviting them to a class.
Once inside a class, click on the Add Students button.
Select the Invite new students with email box to start sending invitations.
Type in a student’s first name, last name, and email address. Then click the Send Invitation button to add that student to your list. This will automatically trigger an email invitation to the student with instructions on how to activate their account.
Please note: If your students do not have an email address or if they don’t want to use their email for privacy reasons, please see our Help Doc How to Invite Students to ESL Library Digital (without an email address).
A pop-up will appear saying that your student will receive an invitation via email. Click Okay to return to the previous page.
Your student will automatically join your class after they have accepted the invitation.
After you have invited your students, their names will appear as pending. They will remain pending until they accept the invitation by clicking the Join Now button in the invite email. Teachers can manage their pending students by clicking on the More Options (...) menu and choosing Cancel Invitation or Resend Invitation. Please note that once an invitation is accepted, that student will join your class.
After an invitation is sent, we recommend that teachers ask each student to look out for this invitation email (and to check their Spam folder in case it lands there).
The email that pending students will receive includes a Join Now button, which will prompt students to create their account or log in with an existing account.
After clicking the Join Now button, pending students will land on a page where they will either make a new account or log in to connect an existing account.
If students do not have an account, they can click the Create an Account button. Students who already have an account can simply click the Log in button.
Students will be prompted to either set up an account or enter their login details.
Create an Account:
After creating an account or logging in, students will now be connected to you, their teacher, and will click on Start Learning. Students will land on their Student Dashboard (https://esllibrary.com/students) after they login, and can access their assigned tasks from this page.
