The Clever Library is a place for teachers to discover, learn about, and adopt new resources for their classroom. Resources in the Library can be added to a teacher’s Teacher Page for easy access by students and teachers.
What do I do if I have an active EXISTING Sumdog Account?
If you have an existing active class on Sumdog, we recommend that you continue to use that current Sumdog class and integrate in the next school year. If you integrate with your current active class, you will lose your student data and be entered into another school. Sumdog on the clever library works best with completely new users or inactive users. We are working to improve this experience for existing users, hold tight!
How do I find resources in the Clever Library if I am a NEW or INACTIVE Sumdog user?
The Clever Library is easily accessed from your existing Clever Portal. Here’s how to use it:
- Log in to your Clever Portal
- Click on Library in the navigation at the top of the page
- Browse around for resources you might want to use with your classes.
How do I add resources from the Library?
Adding resources from the Library is quick and easy! When you find a resource you want to try, click the blue button in the top right corner:
Installing an application will not only add it to your teacher page, it will also automatically set up single-sign on accounts for you and your students – no need to hand enter student information or print out password cards!
Many applications require data from your Clever account in order to set up single sign-on; when installing an resource, Clever will verify that you want to share this data.
This is similar to the screen you might see when you log in to a website with a Google or Microsoft account.
Before installing a new resource, please confirm that the application follows your district’s policies regarding data security and privacy.
Note: some resources in the Library don’t support Single Sign-On or automatic account creation. For those resources, you’ll see a different button, and a notice that you’ll need to set up accounts on your own. When you add one of these to your Teacher Page, it will be a simple link, and won’t provide single sign-on for you or your students.
What do students see?
Students can’t browse resources in the Clever Library, but they can see any resources you add for them onto your Teacher Page!
Be sure to go to your Teacher Page and make it visible to students:
