Tuesday Tip! Updating a Password

A new year means lots of updates and changes.  This year, students returning to our district will have a fresh start and fresh passwords for online products at the beginning of the year.  Using these handy resources, teachers and students can easily update passwords for those apps in ClassLink that hold the password for you (look for the key in the upper right corner of the app).

For a demonstration, check out this video.   The documents linked below will also provide a guide for Williamson County Schools’ users.  (To access, students and teachers may need to log out of personal email accounts and log in to their district myplace.wcs.edu G Suite account.)

WCS Single Sign On Dashboard

The WCS Single Sign on Dashboard powered by ClassLink went live August 1!

The purpose of the dashboard is to save valuable instructional time and prevent management of multiple usernames and passwords. The dashboard is available from school and home. We recommend use of Chrome as your browser when using the dashboard. Later, we will let you know a process to request additional apps to be added.  Your Tech Coach will be able to help you if you have questions. Find the name of your tech coach here or by visiting the tabs in the upper right corner of this blog.

dashboardTo start your successful use please view the training video using the link below. The video is divided into segments with practice activities between each segment. You will enjoy working with others in small and large groups as you complete this training.  Please allow one hour to complete the training.
