Getting Started

Step 1:

The first step to getting started using IE Class with your class is to setup a demo account. The demo account is free and will give you the opportunity to see what is included on IE Class, how the lessons are presented, and how the labs are organized and assigned. You can also practice creating classes and student accounts. When you create your account, we try to activate it the same day, but please allow up to 24 hours. If you cannot log into your account after 24 hours, definitely send us an email.

Step 2:

Once you get your demo account activated, you should try it out. Log into the system and look through the lessons under the Student tab. Look through the features from the teacher center, and practice creating classes and student accounts, and try assigning a lab to the class you created. Also you should log in as a student to see IE Class from the student's perspective.

Step 3:

Once you have looked over the curriculum and seen, and tried, what IE Class has to offer, it is time to get the Purchase Order. If your school requires a W9 or Sole Source Affidavit, both may be downloaded from the top of the Teacher Center page. When you log into your account, click the Upgrade button and enter your PO number. We will be alerted that you have requested the upgrade. You can also email us the PO number too, just be sure to include your username and school. We will upgrade your account and you can immediately start using the curriculum with your classes.

Demo Account:

Teachers may request a free Demo Account to view the available features of IE Class. Demo Accounts are limited to only 10 student accounts. The downloadable lab exercises and projects are also not available on Demo Accounts, but there are sample labs available for download.

The basic service includes one Teacher Account, however subscribers may request two additional Teacher Accounts at the same school for each Basic Service Subscription. Additional Teacher Accounts do not include additional student accounts. The standard 75 student accounts will be distributed among the Teacher Accounts. Each teacher receiving a Teacher Account must sign up online and agree to the Terms of Service. If more than three teacher account are needed, then a second subscription will need to be purchased.


All online services provided with the Basic Subscription, including complete updates to the Lab Exercises, can be renewed for an additional year for just $325. The renewal rate is only available to current subscribers. To be eligible for the renewal rate, the school's account must have already paid the first year registration fee and the school’s subscription must not have lapsed for more than one year.

Additional Students:

Additional student accounts over the 75 included in the basic subscription may be added to the basic or renewal subscription at a rate of $2 per student. Students may be added at any time during the subscription period. Additional student accounts expire with the current subscription regardless of when the additional accounts were added. A maximum of 200 additional students may be added per subscription.

Account Reinstatement:

If a school has had an account within the past year that is currently expired, the account may be reinstated for $35 plus the current renewal price. Accounts that have been expired for longer for one year must register at the current initial registration rate.
