Creating an Account

Note for educators: This article goes through the process of creating an account on Kialo Edu. If you are interested in creating accounts for your students which are managed by you or your institution, see Managed Student Accounts.

Important note for students: If your teacher has given you specific instructions on how to create an account, follow those instead of this article.

Creating an Account using Google Classroom, Microsoft, or Clever SSO

You can create an account using your existing Google Classroom, Microsoft, or Clever SSO account. This will register on Kialo Edu using the email tied to the account you connect, and you’ll log into Kialo Edu using this connected account.

  1. Open the Sign Up page by clicking the blue Sign Up button on the main pages of the site or selecting the tab when asked to sign in.
  2. Click Continue with Google, Continue with Microsoft, or Continue with Clever as appropriate on the sign up page.
  3. A prompt will appear from your selected option to confirm using your email to create an account. Select your account or click confirm.
  4. Your display name appears which is how most other users will see you on Kialo Edu. If required, you can change this later. Click Sign Up.

If you need to view your account’s email address, username, or display name, you can do so on the User Settings page.

Creating an Account using your Email Address

  1. Open the Sign Up page by clicking the blue Sign Up button on the main pages of the site or selecting the tab when asked to sign in.
  2. Click Sign up with email.
  3. Complete the following fields:
    1. Display Name: The name you’d like to appear in most places on Kialo Edu. This will usually be your first name if you are a student. You can change this if you need to, once, after registering.
    2. Email: Your email address.
    3. Password: Enter your desired password here. It must be at least 8 characters long. We recommend a mixture of lowercase and uppercase characters, along with numbers or special characters.
  4. Click Sign Up.

Creating an Email-less Account

Caution: Using an email address when signing up is optional, however it is recommended, as it helps you to access your account if you forget your username or password. You won’t be able to recover your account if there is no email attached and you lose your login information.

  1. Open the Sign Up page by clicking the blue Sign Up button on the main pages of the site or selecting the tab when asked to sign in.
  2. Click Sign up without email.
  3. Read the warning. Click Confirm if you’d like to continue.
  4. Complete the following fields:
    1. Username: This is the unique identifier for your Kialo Edu account. You’ll use this to sign in.
    2. Password: Enter your desired password here. It must be at least 8 characters long. We recommend a mixture of lowercase and uppercase characters, along with numbers or special characters.
    3. Confirm password: Type your password again.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Enter a Display Name. This name will appear in most places on Kialo Edu. This will usually be your first name if you are a student. You can change this if you need to, once, after registering.
  7. Click Sign Up.

If you sign up without an email address but want to attach one afterwards, following the instructions to Change an Email Address will add one to your account.
