2. Enter Username and Password

3. Enter your QuaverCode, if you have one!

The Log In screen is also the best place to enter a QuaverCode if you have recently purchased access to a new Quaver program. You’ll receive this 6-digit code in an email and use it here (just once!) to connect your Quaver account to your new resources.

Click the blue CLICK HERE button to open a new text field:

Then enter the QuaverCode you received. You’ll only need to do this once and then you can forget it!

4. Access your Teacher-Only Resources

Once you’ve logged in, you can select either the TEACHER tab, located at the bottom of the screen, or the yellow TEACHER ACCESS Bus Stop sign, located on the lower left side.

6. Select a Classroom

8. Stream a Quaver Episode

You might start by clicking VIDEO EPISODE to stream the Beat Episode for your students. It will play right from this screen. You can use the icons at the bottom of the video player to activate closed captioning (CC), go to full screen, or check the video streaming options. Quaver videos will automatically adjust to the bandwidth in your computer to give you the best streaming quality possible.
