How to start an Individual Subscription

How to start an Individual Subscription

The Merge EDU Platform is used in classrooms and schools around the world, but individuals can also purchase a subscription for Merge EDU apps to use at home. 

Individual subscriptions to Merge EDU give full access to the app content in all 3 Merge EDU apps, but they don’t unlock the ability to create and manage classes and students. If you are interested in the classroom resources, we recommend purchasing a Merge EDU Platform subscription instead.

In this article, we will show you how to start an individual subscription in two ways:

  1. If you do not yet have a Merge EDU account
  2. If you already have a Merge EDU account

Follow these directions if you need to sign up for a Merge EDU account:

1) Download a Merge EDU app

To create an account, you'll need to download one of the apps. We recommend downloading all of them, since unlocking an individual subscription will give you access to all three.

Merge Object Viewer:

Apple App Store for iOS | Google Play Store for Android or Chromebook | Windows Store

Merge Explorer:

Apple App Store for iOS | Google Play Store for Android or Chromebook | Windows Store

Merge HoloGlobe: 

Apple App Store for iOS | Google Play Store for Android or Chromebook | Windows Store

To learn more about the apps, you can check out our Downloading Merge EDU Apps help article.
