Teachers - Getting Started with Scrible (with Google Apps for Education)
Here's some best practices for using Scrible with Google Apps for Education.
We offer a number of ways to sign into accounts. We recommend using our Google Single Sign On option. Having students sign in this way will avoid them having to remember a separate password for Scrible and needing to receive external emails with a password reset link.
- To sign up/in to Scrible, in a browser where they are signed into their school Google Account, just have them click the button on the Scrible Sign-In page.
- The first time, they'll need to authorize Scrible to
access the requested permissions, and then complete their account information for Scrible. After that, when they click this button to sign in, they'll be taken straight into their account.
Installing Scrible Tools
To use Scrible, you and your students will need to install the Scrible Toolbar Chrome extension. This is how you bring research from the web into your Scrible libraries and adds the Toolbar to annotate it. You and your students should also install our Scrible Writer Google Docs add-on. This is what allows you to manage your bibliography in the document, review your research, and incorporate annotations as cited quotes.
Please see this blog post about our guides and in app tours to learn more about features in Scrible.
If you have any questions or run into any issues, the fastest way to get help is through our Help page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org (for instance if you have a screenshot of a problem you want to send in).
A few notes for the fastest support
- If you're having trouble with the Toolbar, please click the Megaphone icon () near the right end. This will open up the help form and it includes extra logging information from the Toolbar in the report which may help us determine what caused the problem.
- If your students can't receive external emails and they submit support requests, please have them include a teacher email address we can reply to.
- If teachers are submitting a request on behalf of a student, please ask them to include the student's email address to aid us in finding the correct account when researching the issue.
