EdAlive Central (Schools) - Getting Started

Start a Subscription or a Free Trial

Before using any of the EdAlive Web Apps teachers must first create a Teacher Account and then link it to the School they teach at. This process can be instigated from any of the EdAlive Web Apps or from EdAlive Central. The creation of Teacher Accounts and School linking takes place in EdAlive Central. Following are some of the ways you can get started:

Method 1 - Start a Free Trial

Go to the home page of any of the EdAlive Web Apps such as Typing Tournament Online or Maths Invaders Online and click on the Free 30 Day Trial button or go to central.edalive.com/go.

Enter your details

  1. Enter your Title, First Name, Last Name and select your Country.
  2. Enter an Email Address that you use in relation to your work as a teacher.
  3. Enter a password that is at least 6 characters long.
  4. Press the Continue button.

Your Teacher account will now be linked to your School.

Join an existing School

If your School already exists in EdAlive Central it will appear as a result of the search above.

  1. A list of matching Schools will appear. If your School is one of them, click the blue Join This School button beside it.
  2. By joining an existing School your account status will be that of a Teacher at that School and not of a School Administrator.

Create a new School

Use this option if your School does not already exist in EdAlive Central.

  1. Double check that you have entered your school’s details correctly.
  2. Click the blue Create a New School Using the Details Above button.
  3. You will be the first Teacher at this new School and will be automatically allocated School Administrator status.
  4. A series of School Administrator related dialogue boxes will appear. Ensure you read them. Click OK for them all.

School Administrator status

School Administrators can access the options in the School Administration menu at the top of the School Management screen. If you are not a School Administrator you will find the names of your School Administrators by clicking on the School Administrator menu. For more details see the separate School Administrator section in this document.
