About teacher accounts

When you sign in as a teacher, you get full access to the app. That means, among other things:

  • You can log in with an email address, a Google account, a Microsoft account or via Clever

  • You can create libraries, and invite students to join

  • You can manage your account (click the Account icon in the top right toolbar - this is usually an avatar of your face)

  • Only teachers can publish books online

  • You can contact the Book Creator team for support (use the Chat icon in the bottom right of the screen)

Students do not have access to any of the above features.

Note: to comply with our terms of service, teacher accounts must be used by one teacher only. Please do not share your login with other teachers.

About student accounts

When students first log in, they have to:

  1. Use a Google, Microsoft or Clever account

  2. Join a library with a code

If students don't have a Google or Microsoft account, the other option is to create a login for them. They can sign in using a link or a QR code.

Help! I've signed in as the wrong role

If you find that a student has signed in as a teacher by mistake, please follow these instructions - in most case you can simply sign out and sign in again as a student.

If you registered as a student but should have signed in as a teacher, you can update this yourself by logging out, clicking the 'I am a teacher' button and signing in with the same account as before. This time you will be get this message:

How do I change my password?

If you're signing in with your email address, click on the Teacher button, enter your email address and then when you come to the password entry, click on the 'Forgotten password?' link. This will then email you with instructions for resetting your password.

If you need to change your password for a Google or Office account, you need to do that outside of Book Creator:
