My BrainPOP Onboarding Guide
There are a number of ways to get up and running with My BrainPOP. Use this guide as a quick overview to find out which method works best for you!
Single Sign On with Google and LTI
If you’re part of a school using Google Apps for Education or a learning management system that supports LTI, our new Single Sign On (SSO) options are the fastest and easiest way to set up My BrainPOP. We offer a number of resources to guide you through this process, including a Getting Started with Google SSO page and an archived webinar. For support with SSO onboarding, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Bulk Account Creation with Admin Dashboard
Not part of a school that uses LMS or GAFE? No worries! We can enable the My BrainPOP Admin Dashboard for the BrainPOP administrator at your school. With the Admin Dashboard, administrators can upload a CSV to create multiple usernames at one time. They also have the ability to view usage statistics and other subscription information. Note that your administrator will need his or her own My BrainPOP username in order to manage the dashboard. We’ve got a screencast and step guide that provide an overview of the Admin Dashboard and how to use it. To request the addition of the My BrainPOP dashboard for your school, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individual Teachers Creating Classes
Individual teachers with a My BrainPOP username can create a class and invite their students to join it. If students already have a username – either because they’ve joined other classes in the past or received one through the Admin Dashboard – they should use it to join the new class. If they do not already have a username, they’ll need to create one at this stage. Be sure to check out our related screencasts and step guides on setting up classes.
