As long as a student is logged in to Chrome with their school email address, they will be automatically logged in to Rhithm when the Chrome extension is installed.
❗️If a student has never logged in to Rhithm before, they'll be prompted to select their Google account to share it with Rhithm.
If a student is receiving an error message upon loading the app, it may be due to a rostering issue. Please contact email@example.com and our support team will help make sure the student's account is set up properly.
Completing a check-in
Students will complete a check-in the same way they do in the web app, with the option to answer any or all of the questions. After completing the check-in, they will receive a video activity based on their answers.
If a teacher or administrator has scheduled or launched a check-in for students, they'll be prompted to complete this session. Students can also self-initiate a Rhithm check-in.
Scheduling a check-in
Administrators and teachers can schedule check-ins from the web app. We recommend creating a recurring schedule of check-ins to create consistency and make the check-in process more seamless. For step-by-step instructions on how to create a schedule of check-ins, click here.
Administrators and teachers can also launch a live session by clicking "Get in Rhithm" from the web app. More information is available here.
💡 Students will automatically be prompted to complete a check-in that has been scheduled for them.
