How to activate licences for the online Questionbank

Once your purchase is successfully completed, you will receive an automated email (shown above) with instructions and the licence key you purchased.

If you bulk purchased licences for multiple schools, please forward the instructions and licenses to the person who will manage the Questionbank for each school. This could be the Diploma Programme coordinator, a teacher or another school staff member.

To activate the licence for your school, follow the link in the email to the page where you can activate your Questionbank licence.

If you don’t have an account with the online Questionbank yet, create a new account by entering your name, email and a password into the form on the right side of the page.

If you already have an account, you can sign in using the form on the left.

Once signed in, select the “Activate licence” button on the home page. On the next screen, enter the licence key from the email. Select “Activate licence”.


How to set up teacher logins

After you have activated the licence, you will be shown the licence details. To set up teacher logins, select the “Manage logins” button at the top right of the screen.

On the next screen, you can add teacher logins for your school. You can also remove teacher logins on the same form by choosing the “Remove” box next to the teacher’s name. Each licence provides you with a maximum of 10 logins per school. All users on a licence must be affiliated with the same school. If you are purchasing for multiple schools, you must purchase multiple licences.

Select “Update licence” to save your changes.

Once you set up a new teacher login, the app will send an automated email to the teacher with instructions on how to get started.
