Then click on Sign up and you will be redirected to the teacher dashboard.

      This is a great question. During COVID-19 School closures not all students have access to the internet. Some of my student don't even have electricity. Can Khan Academy content legally and practically be made into packets for distribution to students without the benefit of electricity or computer access?

    I am a tutor and am signing up to help my student. It says that a student has entered my class, but when I go to my courses, his name is not there. Very new at this.

    I think I set my account up wrong initially, as a learner, instead of a teacher/parent homeschool. Is there a way to correct this?

    I hope to use Khan to teach a small group distance learners in grades 3-5. How do I set up for multiple grade levels?

      I would put them in separate classes (easier to read the data on assignments) and then assigned them separate grade level material. You can also assign the entire group the same work as well... just more boxes to check. I would also take full advantage of the "getting ready for" material for each grade. I found with remote, assigning the same problem to all students (and I would put yourself in each class as well) then work out the problems together ... they still have to master the tests and quizzes on their own.

    I want to use the features like creating assignments that are offered to teachers to home school my kids, but it wants me to assert that I represent a specific school. what should I do? am I allowed to use as a teacher without a school affiliation?

    I'm planning to use Khan as part of my Independent Studies program. Will I need to created different courses for each student, or can I create a Math / Algebra buffet and let students select the units they need?

    My colleague has my former students and asks me to archive my last year's class as they can't sign in to his class. How do I archive last year's class?

      There's not a way to archive classes, other than deleting the entire class which will delete all data associated with it.

      Students are able to add multiple teachers to their account, so they should be able to join the new class while still in your previous classes.

      If anyone is still experiencing this issue, please reach out via our Help Center (https://support.khanacademy.org/hc/en-us) and we'll be more than happy to further investigate the problem!

      All Khan Academy content requires internet access to initially access. If the students use the mobile app, this will allow them to download content for offline viewing at a later time. Unfortunately, this functionality is not available on the desktop site :(
