Quizlet has been a great way to help students learn material and get a flexible study tool. Teachers can also use Quizlet to help their classes learn and increase classroom engagement. One of those tools is Quizlet Live, which has students collaborate and compete to reinforce material they learned in class.
Quizlet Live has codes that allow students to access the lessons that their teacher has prepared for them. But if you’re not sure about using the codes or don’t know how to use them, it can present a roadblock when students can’t join. This is how Quizlet codes work and how you can use them to organize your lessons.
How do I get a Quizlet code?
When you design a Quizlet Live lesson as a teacher, you’ll get a Quizlet Live code after you choose your study set and design the lesson. The code will be a six letter/number combination, and there will also be a QR code for students to scan if they are unable to enter the code.
Only users with a teacher level account can create Quizlet Live lessons and get a code. Regular students or basic users will not be able to get a Quizlet code.
The code will not exist until the Quizlet Live lesson has been created and must be currently running. Students will not be able to join a Quizlet Live lesson with a code if the lesson is inactive or has been deleted. It’s also important to make sure you have the correct Quizlet code/QR code, or you may accidentally join another Quizlet Live session that isn’t related to your current lesson.
How to use Quizlet Live codes effectively
As an educator with a teacher level account, you can create lessons for students at different study levels. With multiple lessons, students can participate in lessons geared to their skill level, while other students who may be further ahead can challenge themselves.
It’s also possible to group everyone into a lesson and divide them into teams with a tournament structure, having the groups work together to win and move up the rankings. While the goal should remain focused on education, motivating students to excel will help drive more interest in Quizlet Live lessons.
It shouldn’t take long to work out the codes and test them yourself. Once you’ve set up your Quizlet Live lesson, send the codes to students (along with the QR code) and get ready to start the lesson.
