How can my students enroll in our course?

There are two ways to enroll your students in the course:

  • with an enrollment key
  • manually

Using an Enrollment Key

  • Ask your students to create a Teach about US account following the instructions on the homepage.
  • Tell them the enrollment key for your course (you will receive it from Katja Krüger, our administrator, via e-Mail).
  • Your students will find the link to your course in the Going Green section under the tab "Going Green Courses", in the section "Schools". It will be named according to your school name.
  • Once your students click on the course link, they will be prompted to type in the enrollment key.
  • Your students can now access the course page. The enrollment key is only necessary once for the first registration.

Manual Enrollment (by the teacher)

  • Ask your students to create an account following the instructions on the homepage.
  • Go to the menu (side box) Administration in your course.
  • Click on Users.
  • Click on Enrolled Users.
  • You will see a table with two users: yourself and "Going Green", a virtual teacher, who asks some predefined questions.
  • Click on Enroll Users. You will see a list of authenticated users, which very soon will become very long.
  • Search for every student you want to enroll and click on Enroll beside his/her name (for this purpose, it is important that your students register with their actual name).
  • Then click on Finish enrolling users. Your students are now enrolled in the course and can access the tasks and materials.
