Connecting your teacher Code.org account with a third-party login like Clever
If you have an existing Code.org account, you can now easily tie other sign in methods like sign in through Clever. Just follow these steps:
1. Sign into your Code.org account
2 . Go to your Account Settings page
If you see a banner to update your accounts page, go ahead and click the “Try New Version” button. Eventually, everyone will be moved to the new version automatically.
Scroll down to the section that says “Manage Linked Accounts.” It will look something like this:
3. Click “Connect” under the “Actions” column for Clever and “Connect.”
This should successfully connect the login type to your account. Now you should be able to sign in with your new login type!
Set up your students for Clever Log-ins:
1. Sign in with your Clever account.
You will need to make sure you sign into your Code.org account through Clever as a teacher before you can sync with these providers.
2. Create a new section
Go to “My Dashboard” and click on the option to create a new section. This should pop up a dialog with an option to sync with either Google Classroom or Clever, depending on which provider you are using:
3. Choose the section you want to import
4. Fill out section details.
Once you choose a section, you should see the dialog that lets you fill in your section details.
5. Hit “Save” to finish creating your section
Once you hit “Save” in the section details dialog, you’ll have finished creating your section with Clever!
Please note: The Clever integration will not link existing Code.org accounts or automatically move students into their respective classrooms.
Q and A
How should my students be signing in?
If your students are using Clever, they should go to their Clever dashboard and click the Code.org logo.
What if I created a section without Clever and now want to sync my section?
The best way to deal with this situation is to create a new section from scratch using the instructions outlined above. As long as your students were already signing in with their Clever Accounts, they will get to keep using the same Code.org account in your new section. Therefore, their progress should not be lost.
