How to Invite Students to ESL Library Digital (without an email address)
If you are a teacher using ESL Library Digital, please follow the steps below to learn how to add students to your account without an email address. Students will instead create a username to sign up and connect to you, their teacher.
Log in to your account here:
Once logged in to your account, head to the Manage Students page by clicking your name (or the menu icon on smaller screens) in the top right corner of the page (see below).
After landing on the Manage Students page, you will see three tabs: My Classes, My Students, and Invite. Select the Invite tab.
Once inside the Invite tab, scroll down the page to option 2: Invite Students with Codes. Your students can request to join your group by following a URL, entering a teacher code and secret word, and filling out a sign up form. The teacher code and secret word will remain the same for all students unless you decide to regenerate the codes.
You can also display the URL, teacher code, and secret word full screen so that you can project the instructions on a whiteboard. (Click Display Full Screen button.) Once students have the information, you can click the X in the top right corner to exit the full screen.
Students will go to the URL, esllibrary.com/students/sign_up, and enter the teacher code and secret word to connect with you, their teacher. Students will click Continue to proceed to the Sign Up form.
Students will fill out the Sign Up form by entering their first and last names, creating a username and password, and selecting their country of residence. They will also select an avatar to complete the registration. Finally, they will click Continue to proceed.
Students will land on the homepage of their account at esllibrary.com/students. The username and password they created will be their log-in details for future use. Student requests will be sent to you, their teacher, and students will remain pending until you accept their requests.
You can view student requests from the Manage Students page under the Invite tab. Scroll down to option 2, Invite Students with Codes, to accept or reject a request.
After you accept a student’s request, that student will appear under the My Students tab on the Manage Students page. The student’s homepage will show that they are successfully connected with you, their teacher.
If you have any difficulties inviting students to your group with a username, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you!
