Activating your Merge Teacher Account
Activating your Merge EDU account is your key to setting up your classroom, unlocking the science and STEM content and resources like activity plans and STEM projects. Before we get started, there are a few things you will need to do first:
- Make sure you Create a Merge EDU Account
- Make sure your school has an active Merge EDU Subscription
- Make sure you have a Subscription Join Code from your school’s Merge Administrator
Note: If you’re not sure if your school has an active Merge EDU Subscription, or do not know who your school’s Merge Administrator is, contact Merge at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your school and we will assist you.
Now, to activate your Merge EDU Teacher Account, follow these steps:
1) Sign In to the Merge EDU Dashboard
2) Tap the “Teacher Join” Link
Once you’re logged in, you should see the “What’s New” Home Page. Scroll down that page until you get to the dark purple area with white text links. Tap on the right-most link: “Teacher Join”.
3) Enter the “Subscription Join Code”
If you received a Teacher or Subscription Join Code from your school’s Merge Administrator, input it in the Join Code box. The Join Code is NOT case sensitive. Then, tap “Join”.
Note: Be careful not to enter a “Class Join Code”, which is for Students Only and will show up as invalid in the Subscription Join page.
Once your account is activated, you will see that it says “Dashboard | Teacher” underneath the Merge EDU icon in the upper-left corner. You will also have access to the “Students” and “Classes” pages on the left-side menu, under the header “Teacher”.
4) Next Steps
Now that you’ve activated your Merge EDU Teacher Account, you can begin to Set Up Your Classroom. If your subscription permits, you can create your own Classes and Add Students. Then your whole class can experience the interactive science simulations and digital teaching aids in the Merge EDU apps, along with resources like Activity Plans and STEM projects in the Merge EDU Dashboard.
