Setting up your school on Pledre (Tutorial 1)
This tutorial is for you if
- You already have a school and would love to create a more personalized learning environment for your teachers and students.
- You would love to start your own school on-line with only digital infrastructures.
To get started visit https://pledre.com and click on the sign in button above
If you don’t have an account on pledre yet, register or else sign in
After creating your new account, you are given 2200 free Pledre credits that can be used for transactions on the platform.
Since it is a school you want to create and not a single class, scroll down to create and click on schools.
You can now create your school by clicking the button just below the navigation bar. Creating of schools cost 2000 credits (your first school is free as a result of the free Pledre credit)
Fill in your school details. (They can all be edited except school URL even after the school has been created)
Hopefully your school was successfully created. (If you encounter any problem in doing so please contact our support firstname.lastname@example.org )
You can view your school details, teachers and students by clicking on the ‘view details’ button
A personal website URL would have been generated for your created school. It is usually of the form (<school_url>.lms.pledre.com). e.g https://mock.lms.pledre.com
Visit the URL to see your newly created school
If you already have your domain and would love to host your school on your domain please contact our support email@example.com
You would definitely need to add teachers and students to your school before it can be an actual school.
Do this by sending your generated school URL to your teachers and students so they can register to your school on your school.
NOTE: You would have to approve every students / teacher sign-up request to your school before they can login and access your school’s resources
And you are now officially a proud owner of a fully functional on-line school.
