Creating Student Accounts in iCollaboratory-Moodle-Google


After your teacher account is approved, you need to create accounts for your students.


First: Netiquette and safety are the two most important subjects you can teach students about using the internet. Good netiquette is appropriate behavior goes hand-in-hand with helping internet users feel safe. Students who feel safe and secure are unlikely to endanger security of others. Please read the attachment about netiquette.

Second: Teachers need to send a spreadsheet for their students' accounts. The file must contain student username (johns209), password (miC.1key), first name with last initial (JohnS), school name (George Williams Elementary), and username@icollaboratory.net. See the examples listed below.

When creating student accounts:
  • To ensure their names are not duplicated, add a number at the end of the user name.
  • Passwords need to be secure and at least eight characters long. DO NOT give each student the same password.
  • Student firstname should include his/her first name and the first initial of his/her lastname. I.E. Jerry Smith is JerryS, if there is a second Jerry Smith he should be JerrySm.
  • A student's last name should be his/her school name. I.E. Jerry Smith from Hayt School would be JerryS Hayt School. His username name might be jsmith204 or jsmith204hayt.
  • Each student must have a unique email address. We don't want an official email address. Please enter  your student's username with @icollaboratory.net as the email address. 
  • NO commas anywhere in the file!

Note: With the above in mind, open your class list and Excel to begin.

Third:  Your spreadsheet should look like this:


usernamepasswordfirstnamelastnameemail
jerrysYel..low2JerrySHayt-Schooljerrys@icollaboratory.net
jerrys2Pen12cil3JerrySmHayt-Schooljerrysm@icollaboratory.net
johns2Purp!le3JohnSmiHayt-Schooljohnsmi@icollaboratory.net

Fourth: Save your spreadsheet with an extension: xls ; xlsx ; or if you don't have excel, add the name of the program to the end of the file name.

Fifth:  Email the spreadsheet to icollaboratory@gmail.com.


Note: If you have other questions about adding users, please email icollaboratory@gmail.com
