Here’s how to set up your account so that you can use the online courses at with your students.

Start by logging in to your account at  After that, it’s just four steps.

1.  Click the “Add new class” button at the top of the page.

2. Make up a class name and registration code for your class.  Your class name can be anything you want (such as “APPeriod1”).  The registration code is what students will use to register for your class.  Many teachers use their school mascot, followed by the class period (such as “wildcats1”).  The code has to be unique in our system, and we’ll tell you if it’s not.  Repeat this for each class or section that you teach.

3.  Select a curriculum.  If you’re teaching AP Biology, we suggest that you choose our newly-redesigned AP Bio v2.0 course.  For an overview of our courses, click here.

4.  Email your students the registration code.  Then send them to any quiz on  Have them click the “New Student - Register” button at the start of most quizzes, or hover on the menu triangle at the top right of every quiz.  Or you can send them to

That’s it.  There’s a visual guide here.  The visual guide includes a template for an email you can send to your students. 

The best way to use the site is to accompany your students’ online experience with a student learning guide.  This is a handout that deepens learning by having students summarize, predict, connect, and label.  There’s even a crossword puzzle.  You can find a list of these guides in the unit menu for your course.  For AP Bio v2.0, go to the main menu, and then follow the links to each unit menu to find the student learning guides.

If you experience any difficulties or have any questions about distance teaching and learning, please email us at  Or you can use this link to set up a time to talk.
