Starting User Sessions

You can start user sessions on a desktop browser or on an iPad.

At this time, Waterford Early Learning is incompatible with phones and Android tablets.

Starting Sessions on an iPad

If you have installed the Waterford Early Learning app on your iPad, starting a session for your student is easy. To start a session:

  1. Open the Waterford Early Learning app.
  2. Select your school and class.
  3. Tap the student’s picture who will be using the session.

This will automatically begin a Waterford session. Students can then use the Pause and Play buttons to stop and go as needed.

If you have not yet added your school to the Waterford Early Learning app, you will need to receive the QR code from Waterford Manager.
Installing the Waterford Early Learning App on an iPad

To use Waterford Early Learning on your iPad, you need to download the app and add the QR code for your class. To install the app:

  1. Find and install Waterford Early Learning in the iTunes app store.
You must have iPad with iOS 8 installed and at least 1GB RAM.
  1. Log in to the Waterford Manager on your computer. In the Students tab, click the Student App Scan QR Code button for iPad. This will open a QR code on your screen.
  2. Return to your iPad and open Waterford Early Learning.
  3. Point your iPad at the QR code on your computer screen. Tap Start. This will open a QR Code scanner.

The QR code will scan automatically and open the Student Portal on your iPad. From here onward, the Student Portal will always display your student list.

Switching the Student Portal for iPads

If you need to switch classes for any reason, you will need to switch QR codes. To switch the student portal:

  1. Open Settings on your iPad and tap Waterford Early Learning in the Apps section.
  2. Slide Require QR Scan to the right (green) position.
  3. Open the app and repeat the same set-up instructions as before.

Starting Sessions on a Browser

You can start sessions by clicking on your bookmark or desktop shortcut icon, but if you have not yet added these to your computer, you can also start a session through Waterford Manager in a browser. To start a session:

  1. Log in to your Waterford Manager account and click on the Students tab.
  2. Select your class from the dropdown menu.
  3. Click on the Student App icon, which will open in a new tab.
  4. Select your school and class, then select the student who will be running the session.

This will automatically begin a Waterford session. Students can then use the Pause and Play buttons to stop and go as needed.

Make sure your desktop browser meets system requirements before launching a session. Google Chrome is ideal for most Waterford activities.
