How to Invite Students to ESL Library Digital (using an email address)
Note: The first part of this video shows how to invite students without an email address (using a class code). Tammy begins talking about how to invite students with an email address at 4:45. If you want to see the email invitation that students see when you invite them with an email address (instead of a class code), scroll down to Step 7-8 below.
If you are a teacher using ESL Library Digital, please follow the steps below to learn how to add 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, head to the My Classes page by clicking Class Prep then selecting My Classes.
When you land on the My Classes page, you will see a list of all your classes and students. Select a class to invite students to.
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 Close to return to the previous page. Then click on the back button by the top left-hand corner of the page to take you back to the student list for that class.
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 or are manually connected to your group. Teachers can manage their pending students by deleting the invitation (using the Cancel button) or resending the email invitation (using the Resend button). Please note that once an invitation is accepted, that student will join your class.
Note: You may have to refresh the page to see your list of pending invitations.
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.
If students do not receive the invitation email, please see our Help Doc How to Invite Students to ESL Library Digital (without an email address). Or, you can contact us to manually connect students with your group.
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 (active or expired), they can click the Make a new account (I am new!) button. Students who have an active or expired account can simply click the Log in (I have an account) button.
After completing Step 8, students will be prompted to either set up an account or enter their login details.
Note: Students can click on the eye icon to the right of the password field to see what the password looks like before clicking Next.
Create new account:
Log in with existing account:
After completing the Sign Up form or logging in, students will now be connected to you, their teacher, and land on their home page (dashboard) at https://esllibrary.com/students. Students will land on their home page after each login, and they can access any active homework from this page.
