This guide will walk you and your classroom through the process of getting started with GameSalad Studio by signing in with your Clever accounts.

7. Provide the class name that you want, and click the submit button.

8. Repeat the process above to create the number of classes that you need, but don’t add any students to them yet. That will be taken care of when your students sign in with Clever.

Students:

1. Head to https://studio.gamesalad.com and click the Sign in with Clever button.

2. Search for and select your school. (Note: you may not need to do this if you are already signed in to Clever).

3. Enter your Clever login information, then click the login button (Note: you may not need to do this if you are already signed in to Clever).

4. From here, most of the info should already be filled in for you. Fill in a unique username for yourself, then click the Sign Up button to create your Studio account.

After you click the Sign Up button, you should see a message saying “This is the message for U13 students who are using an invite token”.

5. Click on the Join Class button underneath your username dropdown in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

6. You should see a box appear prompting you for an invite code. Your teacher can find the invite code through the steps below.

8. Select the class on the left that you want to invite students to, then click the ellipsis button in the upper right of the class list.

8. You’ll be prompted with a message asking you if you’d like to join your teachers class, click the Join button.

Note: After you click the Join button, it will look like nothing has changed. You’ll need to wait for your teacher to accept you into their class before you’re fully logged in.

Teachers:

Once your teacher has added you to their class you should be able to refresh the page to be logged in!

After you’re logged in, you can view the lessons assigned to you by your teacher by clicking on Workbook under the Lessons tab at the top of the page.
