How can students use Passports for login? Passports can be used as an alternate login method for students using Learning.com. Passports simplify the login process by allowing students to scan their Passport code in front of their webcam, eliminating the need to type in a username, password, and district name.
What are Passports?
The Passport is a printed document that contains an individualized quick response (QR) code that each student scans in front of the computer’s webcam to log in to Learning.com—no typing necessary!
How do students log in with Passports?
Step 1. Students navigate to login.learning.com and select the green ‘Passport Log In’ button:
Step 2. Students are prompted to hold their Passport up to their computer’s webcam.
Step 3. Using the webcam camera, students align their unique Passport code to fit the visual on their screen and sign in to their accounts. Let the learning commence!
Where do I print Passports for my class?
Passports can only be printed from the original teacher interface.
Navigate to your Learning.com class gradebook and select the ‘Print Login Cards’ button:
This will open Passports for each student enrolled in your class in a new browser tab that you can print:
Can I reprint Passports?
You can reprint Passports as many times as necessary but remember that each time you reopen a student’s or class’s Passport file from your gradebook, the Passport code resets and any previously printed Passport codes cannot be used.
Tip: Save your class Passports as a PDF on your computer so you can reprint the file as often as necessary without generating a new Passport code.
If a student is in several Learning.com classes with different teachers, creating a new Passport code through your gradebook may cause confusion when the student goes to his or her next class. When in doubt, help your student log in with a unique username and password.
My Passports aren't scanning?
- Make sure that you've 'Allowed' Learning.com to use your webcam.
- Internet Explorer (IE): IE does not allow for webcam access. You will need to use Passports with another browser.
- There is a known issue when using Passports on an iPad with Google Chrome. While a resolution for this is being worked on, please use Passports with another browser when using an iPad.
- If you attempt to allow use of your webcam and you see that the settings are grayed out or disabled, this may mean that your IT department has restricted access to the settings. For an immediate solution, please have students log in with their typed usernames and passwords.
- Check that another application is not already using the webcam
- Ensure that the student is using the most recent version of their Passport
