Frequently Asked Questions
I have a class that is not shared in Clever that I would like to have show up in BrainPOP. How can I accomplish this?
Your Clever administrator can create custom class sections in Clever that will appear in Clever and BrainPOP. Just send this link to them and they will be glad to assist.
I am a co-teacher in a class, the class is showing up on the primary teacher's class and not mine. What can be done to fix this?
Unfortunately, we do not yet offer support for co-teachers in Clever. If sections in Clever have more than one teacher, only the primary teacher will have access to the class. As an alternative, Clever admins can create duplicate classes with identical rosters by uploading custom sections through the Clever dashboard that will sync over to BrainPOP.
We look forward to building co-teacher support into future product releases. We'll be happy to pass your email along and let you know when we do start offering support for co-teachers. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or feedback.
I am listed as a staff member in Clever, not as a teacher. What can I do to get access to BrainPOP through Clever?
Our Clever integration syncs students and teachers. Users need to have one of those two designations in Clever in order to be able to log in.
If there are non-teacher staff (librarians, admins, etc.) that need to log in through Clever and aren’t in your district’s SIS, you can manually upload them to Clever directly as a teacher. Once the account is created and shared with our Clever apps, the teacher will be added during our nightly sync.
If they need to have classes with students in BrainPOP, Clever administrators can create custom class sections in Clever that will appear in Clever and BrainPOP. We are currently working with partner engineering on the ability to support syncing non-teachers with BrainPOP to improve on this process.
Can I change my Clever-synced class names in BrainPOP?
No. If you update your Clever-synced Class name in BrainPOP, the name will revert back with the next nightly sync. If you need the class name adjusted, you should contact your district's Clever administrator.
I'm a teacher who doesn't have classes in my district's SIS. Can I log into BrainPOP?
Yes. As long as you have a teacher role in Clever at a school with a BrainPOP plan, you should be provisioned into BrainPOP automatically.
