Teach digitally matching your textbooks and subjects
Here’s how it works
Teaching simply and digitally in 3 steps
Select a course in the catalogue
In our catalogue there are digital courses for textbooks and school subjects. There are courses that are adapted to specific books as well as book-independent courses that are adapted to the curriculum.
From elementary school to the high school degree, there is almost certainly something for you. If not, you can also write your own course for free in the authoring tool.
Log in or create an account
On the eSquirrel home page, click on “Sing in” in the upper right corner and register for free.
After entering your data you will receive a confirmation message by email (if you registered with an email address) or as SMS (if you registered with your cell phone number). Click on the link sent to you to complete the account creation. Or you can log in with Facebook, Google or Apple.
Afterwards you can easily login with your access data.
Creating a new class
If you are logged in, you will find the different tools of eSquirrel in the upper left corner of your browser. To teach with eSquirrel, you need to create a new class. You can do this in the teachers’ portal.
In the portal, click on + New Class box, select your desired eSquirrel course.
Just enter class name (e.g. 5A 2019/29), number of students in the class and duration of the course. You can also test each course 1 month free of charge.
If necessary: pay class license with credit card/Paypal.
After creating the class, you can easily print the instructions for your students.
You get the message: New class successfully created!
In the lower right corner there is the possibility to print the instructions for students. To do so, click on print instructions. Alternatively you can open your eSquirrel class via the teacher portal and click on the printer icon under Manage. This way you can also print and hand out the instructions.
If you are working with students under 14 (16 in Germany), give them the instructions and have them install it with their parents or legal guardians.
eSquirrel offers great added value to our school books! Finally something really innovative, which students like to use and which also makes work easier for teachers.
During the home schooling period it was not easy for me to decide which learning contents the children can work on/repeat in biology. But thanks to eSquirrel it worked out well. The students had the task to play through 3 quests I had chosen. The feedback I received yesterday was very positive. There was a “glow” on some faces when they reported about it. I think eSquirrel will be a fixed part of my lessons in the future.
I’m a big fan of eSquirrel and have also received a lot of positive feedback from the parents.
Due to the possibility of using eSquirrel free of charge, I have been using it with my classes since distance learning since mid-March and am thrilled with it. Even now, in addition to face-to-face classes, I very much appreciate the exercises that are perfectly tailored to the textbook.
