Setting Up Classrooms

Getting Started with Classroom

If you are using Classroom you have one of the following licenses.

Classroom: This license is for one teacher and their students.

Multi-Classroom: Allows for the creation of multiple classrooms with a cumulative limit of 50 students.

Campus License: Allows for the creation of multiple classrooms with a cumulative limit of 500 students

If you have a Multi-Classroom or Campus License user, you may want to have someone designated to be the administrator. This may be someone in the Technology department, or a designated teacher.

It is best to only have one or two people oversee the administration of a Multi-Classroom or Campus License for set up and maintenance purposes.

Classroom Setup

First time log in and set up:

Please have your license number accessible as you will need this to log in. Your license number is located on your receipt.

Go to https://weblogo.terrapinlogo.com You and your students will use this website to login each time. You may want to bookmark this site. You can access this website from any browser and on any device.

Alternatively, if you have the online receipt from Terrapin Logo, the license code will appear at the bottom of the receipt. Click on the license code which is also a link, the link will open the login dialog and fill in the license code for you.

The first thing you will see is the Login Chooser. Select the “with License Code option”.

Enter your license code. You will not have a password the first time you log in. Leave the password blank. You will set that up once you are logged in. You may want to select remember my license code to make future logins easier.


Creating Admin Password

Set your password. From the toolbar select tools, a dropdown menu will appear. Select settings from the dropdown menu.

Create your password. You will leave the current password blank when setting up your first password. Should you decide to change your password in the future you will need to enter current password.

If you have a Single User or Household License, you are done with setting up your login.

If you purchased a Classroom, Multi-classroom or Campus License use the table of contents in the upper right corner, select the type of license you purchased for step by step instructions, or click on the specific step you are looking for found underneath your classroom type.

The classroom name should only contain letters and numbers; it cannot contain any of these characters: :.[]{}()&~!^=. The classroom name will be the classroom name assigned by Terrapin Logo, followed by a dot, plus the specific classroom name created for the teacher. For example if your school was assigned abcelementary“, and you created “MrsJones_Math”, the login name for that class will be “abcelementary.MrsJones_Math”.

Note that the classroom name is not case sensitive. When logging in to the new classroom, “abcelementary.mrsjones_math” works just fine.

The log-in credentials will be:

Classroom Name: abcelementary.MrsJones_Math (the new classroom name)
Password: (the password that you assigned).
