Sign into your school as admin

We set up an admin user i.e. a user having all the privileges automatically while creating your school. Its email ID is the same as the one your are signed in with in CourseLit.

Your school uses the same mechanics as CourseLit to sign a user in i.e. sending a magic link over email. Click on the top right button on your school’s page to sign in.
