When your schools subscribes to the Study Samurai Library there are 3 options schools can choose from for students to access the site:
OPTION 1: INDIVIDUAL STUDENT LOGINS
Set up EVERY student with their own individual login details so you can track students’ progress and they can see what they have completed and so students have ownership of their course. This is best practice and our recommended option. If you choose this option, we will send you a spreadsheet to enter the number of students in each group you’d like to track, then we will create an access code for each group. You then give students their access code so they can register and create their own username and password to access the site.
OPTION 2: SINGLE USERNAME FOR SCHOOL
Set up a single generic login that the whole school community (parents, teachers and students) can all use to login. Advantage – everyone uses the same login and you can put it in the school newsletter and create a direct link so that it can autologin from a secure section of your site. Disadvantage – no tracking of student progress or individual student ownership of their course. Schools who subscribed prior to 2019 are automatically set up with this option as this was how it was previously set up, but they can now change at any time to one of the other options.
OPTION 3: HYBRID
Combine the two options, set up the generic login for all of the school community to use and access the site AND choose to track certain groups by setting them up with individual logins. You can add additional groups to be tracked at any time. Disadvantage – if students are to be tracked they must login with their individual login NOT the school login which could confuse some students.
