The Magic Login Link

We have a "Magic Link" system that allows students/clients to completely bypass the login page altogether and instead, be automatically logged in to any course to which they have access.

This special link is really useful for when you wish to send somebody direct access to any specific course they've purchased -- because it reduces the usual friction involved in entering an email address and a password. Login pages, while seemingly simple, can shockingly bounce away significant amounts of people over time who can't figure out how to login. We want to avoid that for you.

The "Magic Link" is different for each course a student has access to and look kind of like this:

Here's how to find the "Magic Link" for any student:

  • Click on Students in the left navigation
  • Search for the student in question, and click on the student's name once you find them
  • Open the Courses section, and find the Course in question
  • Click on ... menu and click Copy Magic Link. (This will copy the Magic Link to your clipboard)
  • Send this link directly to your student by pasting it into a message to them. (It will allow this specific student ONLY to go directly to the Home Page for this specific Course.)

Important notes about the "Magic Link":

  • Each "Magic Link" is specific to one specific student and one specific course.
  • Do not send the same "Magic Link" to different students; instead, grab each student's unique Magic Link
  • The "Magic Link" will never change and will always allow a student to log into a specific course, UNLESS you change the name of your course or school, disable or delete a student, or remove the course.
  • The format of the Magic Link is not customizable, sorry!
