For teachers: logging in (username and password)

For teachers: logging in (username and password)

Where can I find my login details? (username and password)

If the Wordshark 'administrator’ in your school/organisation has set you up as a ‘teacher’ user then you will receive an invitation email (via Wordshark) that includes a link (your Wordshark Online unique school URL), your username (your email), and a temporary, one-tme password. When you log into Wordshark for the first time, Wordshark asks you to change your password to something more secure of your own choice. 

Problems logging in? 

  1. If you can't remember your password, log into Wordshark, enter your username (your email), and then click on ‘Forgotten your password’ to reset your password. 
  2. Note that passwords are case-sensitive.
  3. The webpage is blocked and needs ‘whitelisting’.  If you suspect that your school system may have restrictions on what can be accessed via school computers etc, contact the school ICT support to ask them to whitelist https://onwordshark.com and also the help desk, https://wolhelp.wordshark.co.uk/portal/en/kb
  4. If the username (your email) is not accepted, please contact: online@wordshark.co.uk 


Accessing the program outside of school

You can log in to the program from anywhere. If you often do this from home, it's worth setting up a ‘Shortcut’ or ‘Bookmark’ on your computers/devices, so that access to Wordshark Online is quick and easily. 

When you first log in you can use the QUICK START GUIDE for Teacher users

  1. distributing login details to students
  2. student user journey info
  3. day-to-day usage
  4. if logging in as a teacher for the first time
