Teachers can now create accounts for their under-13 students

Teachers now have the power to create Khan Academy accounts for their students who are under 13!

We’re working to make it as simple as possible for teachers to get their classes started with Khan Academy, and this is just a first step.

Before creating the accounts, make sure you have permission from your students’ parents. You can download our sample permission slip to send home with your students.

Then, to add your students, visit Coach > Manage Students and click the green “Add new students” button.

This opens the form for inviting students by their email addresses (if they’re over 13):


If your students are under 13 and do not have email addresses through Google Apps for Education, choose “create Khan Academy accounts for them.”

Here, you’ll create a username and password for your first student and enter their birthdate and their parent’s email address:


You’ll receive a confirmation and then you can create your next student’s account.

As soon as you’ve created the account, your student can start using it – so you can create accounts for your whole class one afternoon or evening and have them log in the next day!

Soon, we will be opening up this feature so that you can also manually create accounts for your students who are over 13.
