Step 1: Sign in with your Google or Clever account
You will need to make sure you sign into your Code.org account through Google or Clever before you can sync with these providers.
To sign in with your Google Account, click on the “Sign in with Google account” option from the sign in page:
Note: If you currently sign in with an email and password, as long as the email address of your Google Account matches the email address for your Code.org account, you will be able to sign in with the Google Account option. If the emails do not match, you can go into your account settings and update your email address from there so it matches the email address of your Google Account. Then, sign back out and "Sign in with Google Account."
To sign in with your Clever account, go to your Clever dashboard and click on the Code.org logo:
Note: We are actively working on allowing users to connect their Clever account with an existing Code.org account in case you were using an account with Clever before but now want to use the Clever integration.
Step 2: Create a new section
Go to “My Dashboard” and click on the option to create a new section. This should pop up a dialog with an option to sync with either Google Classroom or Clever, depending on which provider you are using:
Step 3: [First-time only, for Google Classroom] Authorize Code.org to use Google Classroom
The first time you try syncing a section with Google Classroom, you will need to authorize Code.org to use Google Classroom. Click the link that says “Click here to authorize Google Classroom.”
You should get something like this:
Make sure you choose the email address that matches with the Google Account you are logged in with!
Hit “Allow” on the next dialog.
Step 4: Choose the section you want to import
Step 5: Fill out section details
Once you choose a section, you should see the dialog that lets you fill in your section details.
Step 6: Hit “Save” to finish creating your section
Once you hit “Save” in the section details dialog, you’ll have finished creating your section with Google Classroom or Clever!
Q&A: How do I re-sync my list of students?
If your Google Classroom or Clever roster gets updated, you can sync your list of students in Code.org by going to your Code.org section, clicking on the “Manage students” tab, and hitting the button to “Sync students from Google Classroom” or “Sync students from Clever.”
Q&A: How should my students be signing in?
If your students are using Google Classroom, they should go to the Code.org sign in page and click on the option to “Sign in with Google Account" on the right side (not by typing their credentials on the left).
If your students are using Clever, they should go to their Clever dashboard and click the Code.org logo.
Q&A: What if I sign into my Code.org account with an email address and password, instead of my Google or Clever account?
- Go to your Clever Portal and click on the Code.org logo to sign into Code.org. This will pop up a dialog that looks like the following:
- Click on the "Yes, link my account" button. This will take you to the Code.org sign in page.
- Sign in to your existing Code.org account, however you are used to signing into your account already.
- You should now be able to sign into your existing account with your Clever login!
