IDÉLLO allows you to create groups of students to share resources and activities with. To be part of your groups, students must above all have an IDÉLLO account.
You will therefore first invite them to share the license giving you access to the website. Once they have received a first invitation from you, they will have to create their account and join the group. They will automatically be part of your relationships and you can invite them to join other groups afterwards.
When logged in, from your profile menu, under My community, click Manage my groups and invite students. Then click on Create a group.
See details in the video below.
Once a student has already an IDÉLLO account, he or she can simply go to the address given in the email message received or found on the label sent by you, the teacher: idello.org/en/join-group
and enter the group code. Then they have to confirm that the invitation is from you and accept the invitation.
Choose YES, I HAVE AN IDÉLLO ACCOUNT
Fill in his username and password and click SIGN IN.
The student is part of the group automatically once connected.
A teacher can change a student’s password without an email address by going to My subscriptions> Select a student and Change password.

Although the french terms “amérindien” and “Indien” are used to discuss the many Aboriginal or First Nations populations in Canada, it must be kept in mind that this terminology is sometimes pejorative, discriminatory or insulting in the light of socio-political and historical realities, past and present. Because of the diversity of identities, situations and political issues experienced by these populations from the first peoples, there is no consensus on a universal and fixed definition. These terms are always expected to evolve over time, as their meaning is challenged, debated and reconstructed by the people involved, and this in consideration of the evolution of changing social perceptions and cultural specificities.
Despite this fact, and because of the educational value recognized in several contents available on our inventory, the TFO Digital Learning team has decided to continue presenting them to IDÉLLO users.
