How students log in?
Both students and teachers can login using your student login via the login button at the top of website. Enter your school username and password or use the Quick login link provided on sign up.
You can also apply to enable quick IP Login.
If you do not know your student login, login to your Teachers Dashboard to see your student login details.
How do teachers login to access account settings?
NEW Schools that subscribed after November 2020 will have a separate teacher only login. The teacher login will allow you to access to manage your account details and access teacher specific resources. Teacher login is via the Teachers Dashboard.
You only need to use the teacher login if you need to change your student password or access account tools.
What is IP Login?
IP login allows for your school’s network IP address to be saved to your account. Students can then login using the single-click quick IP login link without needing to remember usernames or passwords.
Please note: IP login is only available for logging in with your school account. It does not provide auto login for each CSI student profile.
How do I get IP address login?
To be eligible for quick IP login, your school must have a static IP address (a fixed IP address that doesn’t change). Speak to your schools Network Administrator for this information. Then email us your IP address to email@example.com to request IP login.
Do you have login widgets we can add to our schools website?
Yes. We have handy login widgets that you can add to your schools website to allow for one-click logins. To access these widgets, log into your account and visit the widgets page.
I’ve lost my username or password

For older user, use the Username and Password retrieval form or contact Ryebuck Media on firstname.lastname@example.org
School Account Questions
How soon can we access the website?

Can my students have separate accounts?

Why does each student need a login for the CSI program?
The CSI program allows for your students to save their work and continue working on it from any computer at any time. For this to work, each student will need to create a profile which they can log into.

Is there an easy way for teachers to view all their students profiles?
YES! We have a handy teachers admin page for CSI. This tool is only available for teachers so please email us from your school email to request the link.
