Easel Pro For Educators Application
Please answer each question truthfully and as thoroughly as possible. Our team will review these applications once we make the platform available and grant Easel Pro access to you once approved. This process usually takes 1-2 weeks, at which point you will be able to see your Pro status on your Easel account page.
Using Easel Pro for Educators
We recommend teachers create a single Easel Pro account that can be used to carve student projects with Easel Pro features. For this to work, each student will create their own free Easel accounts, create their projects, and then share their projects with their educator for carving.
To share a project, go to Project > Share > Unlisted and then copy/paste the URL that is shown.
We are currently unable to provide individual student access or district-wide Easel Pro access. We suggest having students create their own Easel accounts, as the base software is completely free. The Pro features will still be accessible to individuals using the free version of Easel when they are creating and designing their projects. This way, students are able to work on projects at their leisure, and they would simply have to share their project with the educator's account if/when it needs to be carved.
When it comes time to carve the project, students can share the file with the associated Educator account of the program or class to connect to the machine and carve the project with any active 'Pro' features. More information about sharing and publishing projects can be found here: Making and Sharing a Project
Alternatively, a shared admin or program/course account can be made for all students and educators to access. This account can apply for an Educator Account so that anyone with access has Easel Pro. It is recommended that the email address used for the admin account is a valid address for security and account access reasons.
