This article goes over how myTeachable integrates with your school, and how to enable/disable myTeachable account access on your school.
Enabling myTeachable on your school means that any user with a myTeachable account will be able to access your school—and any other school they are part of—from the myTeachable dashboard.
MyTeachable accounts are enabled for each school by default. You can find the myTeachable toggle from your school's Settings > General > myTeachable menu.
myTeachable Owner Accounts
With myTeachable, school owners can do the following:
- Access the admin area(s) for their existing school(s) by clicking on the school from their My Schools dashboard
- Access any myTeachable-enabled schools owned by others on which they are a student, author, or affiliate
- Create new schools
- Manage their myTeachable account settings like name, email address, profile picture (managed through Gravatar), and password
- Access the help center to resolve issues and submit support tickets to customer care
All other administrative details, like managing students, Teachable plans, billing, user payments, invoicing, report generation, and so on, are handled in your individual school admin area—not from your myTeachable dashboard.
myTeachable Student Accounts
Upon clicking Log In as a student, those with an logged-in myTeachable account will see this:
Those without a myTeachable account, or not signed in to a myTeachable account, will see the same form as they usually do. From here, they can sign in with their school account:
If they do not have a school account, they can create one by clicking Create an Account. If they click Log In with myTeachable, they will be prompted to sign in to their myTeachable account.
You can see school users who have myTeachable accounts set up by going to the Users area and looking for the Teachable logo by their image:
NOTE: If you are a student and do not see your school listed in myTeachable, or do not have the option to login through myTeachable, it is possible that the school owner has disabled myTeachable. If that is the case, you can login to the school directly from the school homepage.

Schools with less than 100 students and a paid plan subscription can disable myTeachable access. This option is available under myTeachable in the Settings area.
Treat this option with caution, as it is likely to create confusion for your students who have been accessing the school with their myTeachable accounts; keep the following potential issues in mind:
- Your school will no longer show up in a student’s myTeachable dashboard.
- Students who have myTeachable accounts will have their account passwords on your school set to whatever the myTeachable password was (i.e. they’ll have the same login credentials as myTeachable).
- If a student is in the middle of a purchase on your school when you disable, the purchase will most likely not go through.
If you've disabled myTeachable, you can reenable it by going back to myTeachable in the Settings area. From there, click Enable myTeachable accounts. Afterwards, you'll see this prompt:
If you select Yes, automatically connect, users with a myTeachable account will have your school automatically added to their dashboard.
If No, I’d rather have them opt in is selected, users will be required to opt in to connect their school account with their myTeachable account.
