To take part, teachers need to have classes set up with personalized accounts.  There are a few ways to do this:

  • Teacher has a personalized account and all students use that (with a generic username and password) (fill this out to get signed up)
  • Teacher has a personalized account and submits a CSV with student info (teacher can also add them manually from their account) (copy and use this template)
  • School IT department sets up a direct link between the school's Google OU and News-O-Matic using Clever, Classlink (paid version), or GG4L (see here for info)
