What are individual logins?
EducationCity provides each user with different levels of access via user specific logins (Admin, Teacher, and Student user). What you see on EducationCity depends on which user type you’ve been set up as.
Student users can:
Please note: If you’re concerned about students remembering usernames and passwords, they can use the ‘Pick name from a list’ option via the school login.
Administrators have full access to the school subscription. In addition to the features available to Teacher users (see above), Administrators can also set school-wide preferences, such as:
How do students log in at school?
The best way to give your students access to EducationCity is by setting up a shortcut to the login page on the desktop of each device you use – students can then navigate directly to EducationCity and log in using their own individual logins. Any Activity completed once students are logged in will then be recorded for you to view in SuccessTracker, and students can access their own MyCities and MySuccess areas. If your school uses single sign on (SSO), logging in is slightly different. For more information, please see the Single Sign On (SSO) section of the FAQs.
How do students log in at home?
Students can then log in via www.EducationCity.com using the same login details they use at school. Administrators can determine what parts of the product are accessible outside of school hours.
What does a trial include?
A trial gives your school unlimited access to all of EducationCity’s educational resources and features for 21 days. During that time, you, your colleagues and students can access the resources completely free of charge.
Can I share my trial details?
Yes, please do. We’d encourage you to share your trial with your colleagues so your whole school can explore our resources at the earliest opportunity.
How do I cancel my free trial?
There’s no need to cancel your free trial. It will simply expire after the 21 days have passed.

How much is it to subscribe?
EducationCity is a subscription-based program and pricing is determined by the number of subjects and students you wish to have access. Please contact us directly for more information.
Can EducationCity be used on tablet devices?
Yes. You can navigate through all of EducationCity, access our PlayLive games and view all Activity Sheets, Lesson Ideas and Teacher Notes on tablets. For our Learn Screens and Activities we’ve added a ‘Tablet Friendly’ icon, which you’ll see throughout the site, to help you easily identify which content can be used on tablets in an up-to-date web browser.
We’re constantly adding new tablet-friendly content for you to enjoy too. A quick way of seeing our new content (all of which is tablet-friendly!) is to go to the Teacher Area located in the left navigation bar, then select the ‘New Content’ tab.
For content without the icon, we recommend you use one of the browsers available that stream Flash content on tablet devices.
Special Education Needs
Can EducationCity be used for students with special educational needs?
Definitely. EducationCity enables teachers to differentiate lesson content according to students’ aptitudes and abilities.
Our Activities, Learn Screens, Topic Tools and Activity Sheets support all the main learning styles using color, sound, text, audio commentary, animated graphics, and interactivity, to appeal to the widest possible range of users.
Preference settings are also available to rename grade-level labels, remove timers, and simplify login procedures. In addition, often the operating system’s settings can be used to increase the mouse pointer size on screen or vary the volume of the audio files to help students with visual/auditory issues.
Is EducationCity inclusive?
Yes, EducationCity is an inclusive resource and we consider that very important. As such, we:

If you don’t have login details, you’ll need to ask your child’s teacher for them – we’re unable to give them out for Data Protection reasons.
