This article explains how to convert your old Teachable instructor account to a new, centralized myTeachable account. If you joined Teachable after November 9, 2016, you already have a myTeachable account and don’t need to worry about converting.
What Does It Mean to Convert Your Account?
myTeachable is a new feature that allows owners to manage multiple schools with a single account, and will optionally allow students to access all the courses they’re enrolled in on the Teachable platform from one myTeachable account.

How to Convert Your Account
If you'd like to convert your account to a myTeachable account, you must first enable myTeachable on your school. To do so:
- Go to your Admin page.
- On the bottom left hand of the Admin page, click the gear icon to go to the Settings page.
- In the General settings page, scroll down to the myTeachable section.
- Click Enable myTeachable Accounts.
- If you'd like to automatically connect users on your school whose emails match an existing myTeachable account, click Yes, automatically connect. If not, click No, I'd rather have them opt in.
Afterwards, the account that is associated with the school will automatically become a myTeachable account.
