Log in with Google SSO
There are two ways to access a Google integration:
From a BrainPOP homepage
Through the Google Marketplace Waffle
Users can also access BrainPOP via the Google Marketplace waffle. Any installed BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr., BrainPOP Science and BrainPOP ELL apps will appear in Google’s “even more” menu. Click the app to launch the integration.
Create your Teacher Account with Google SSO
Teachers create their accounts with BrainPOP on demand the first time they log in via Google SSO.
If teachers already have individual educator accounts with BrainPOP, their account will be automatically linked to their Google identity the first time they log in via Google, provided the email address used for their educator account matches their Google email address.
Depending on your domain's setup, your teacher account may be automatically created the first time the app is accessed without receiving any prompts. If you encounter prompts, follow these steps to create your account.
- Log in with Google using one of the two methods described above. You will see a prompt that asks Who are you? Choose I'm a Teacher.
- Next, you will be prompted for your school's Educator Code. If you don't know your school's Educator Code, this article will help you find it.
- Enter the Educator Code and click Submit. Your teacher account will be created and you will be logged in.
