If your district/school has set up LTI for itslearning, this article will guide you through how to add Listenwise to a Course in itslearning and get started with teacher and student accounts. Share the Student Guide for itslearning to help them get started with Listenwise.
If teachers or students receive an error message when launching Listenwise in itslearning, please reach out to our Support team via this form.
Please see below for important notes before getting started:
- The teacher for the course must launch and set up the course within Listenwise before students can use Listenwise for the course.
- When using the Listenwise tool for the first time, teachers and students will be asked to set up a new account. If they already have a Listenwise account but have never launched via itslearning, they will be asked to log in. This will only need to be done once. After that, teachers and students will be logged in automatically.
Add Listenwise to a Course in itslearning
Go to the Library tab and search for Listenwise.
Click on the resource to open it. Click Add to…, choose Add to a course and confirm which course to add Listenwise to.
After you’ve added the resource, open the itslearning course and click Resource. Click Listenwise to open the tool. Most districts opt to have tools open in a new browser window.
Set Up Teacher Account
The first time you launch Listenwise, you will either pair your existing Listenwise account with your itslearning account or create a new Listenwise account. You only need to do this once. See below for instructions for both scenarios:
Pair your existing account:
If you already have a Listenwise account, it will recognize your email and you’ll see a message about merging your accounts. Click Yes, merge my accounts to proceed and pair your account.
Create an account:
If you don’t have a Listenwise account, you will need to complete the form to create an account.
Once you log in, Listenwise will recognize you in itslearning and this password won’t be needed again. If you want to log into listenwise.com, you can use these credentials.
Create Listenwise Class for a itslearning Course
1. Once you set up your teacher account and choose your school, you will be prompted to create a Class in Listenwise. The itslearning course name will auto-populate in the Class Name box, and we recommend using this name to keep things consistent between itslearning and Listenwise.
Do you have existing Listenwise classes? If so, you will be asked if you want to pair with an existing Listenwise class. We recommend creating a new class for the itslearning course, so you can skip this step by clicking Add New Class. You’ll then follow the steps from above to create your class.
NOTE: In order to use Listenwise with another course in itslearning, you will need to launch the tool from that course. You’ll follow the same process to create a class and set up Listenwise for that course.
Navigating Listenwise in itslearning
Once you create a class, you will then be directed to your teacher dashboard. From here, you can search the Listenwise content library and listen to stories. You will be able to navigate the Listenwise website through itslearning.
Once you find a story you want to use, you can create customized written assignments or assign auto-graded comprehension quizzes to students. To share assignments with students, direct them to launch Listenwise from the course Resources. More information on the student experience is below!
Explore the Teacher Tools section of the Support Center for more help creating assignments.
Student Setup in itslearning
Once you add Listenwise to your course, students will see Listenwise listed under the Resources tab
The first time they launch Listenwise, they will need to either set up an account and pair an existing Listenwise account. Once they complete this step, they will be enrolled in your class and added to your roster on the Manage Classes tab under your Classes page.
NOTE: They will only need to enter a password once. Moving forward, Listenwise will automatically recognize them in itslearning.
Once they successfully log in, students will see all of their assignments on their dashboard. They can do assignments, review their work and listen to stories on their own from here.
As a reminder, to share assignments with students, direct them to launch Listenwise from the course Resources. You will not share links with students.
