Quick tips for new teachers

The Learning Navigator is free to use and always will be. Signing up for an account is easy. You don’t need an account to search and browse for learning resources in the catalog, but you will need one to start building and saving collections, creating classrooms, and analyzing student progress.

Registering for an account allows teachers to do the following:

  1. Create and assign formative assessments.
  2. Track progress for their entire class on a real-time dashboard.
  3. Based on student performance, remix unique lessons and courses for students, using curated resources aligned to standards.  Students study at their own pace using immediate feedback to navigate learning.

Create an Account

1. Launch www.gooru.org and click on the Sign Up Free button in the upper right corner.

2. There are two ways to create an account and log into the Learning Navigator:

A. Google Single Sign-On:  You will not need to provide your password every time you log into the Learning Navigator.  Click on Sign Up with Google > enter your Google email address and password.  Next time you login, click on Sign in with Google and the Learning Navigator will use your stored Google credentials to authenticate you. You will not have to enter your Google email address and password again.
  B. Credentials:  Create a new account with an email address, password, and other information.  To log into the Learning Navigator, enter your email address and password.  
3.  After selecting your role as a “Teacher” you will be prompted to create a classroom.  Enter a classroom name and click Create, or click Cancel if you want to create a classroom later.
4. You will be taken to your classroom page.  Please refer to the support articles on how to create a Course, Collection, or Assessment:

Or click View Featured Courses to browse and remix the Learning Navigator’s educator-curated courses.  
Once you assign a course to your classroom, you can share the Classroom Code with your students so they can join the classroom.
