The following is a suggested email to send to your parents that introduces LINC-ED and explains how they generate a password to log on for the first time. In Step 1 the parents need to visit the lost password page of your site. To find this url, type in your school's site address then add /wp-login.php?action=lostpassword to the end of this. For example,
We are delighted to be able to launch our new reporting system, LINC-ED. The staff and students have been posting rich content to our LINC-ED site and we are excited to share this with you and involve you in your child’s learning journey.
Our aim has been to implement a robust system that allows teachers, parents, and students to access learning in an online environment that is secure, easy, and effective. In terms of security, LINC-ED commissioned Andrew Horton, an internet security expert, to write a report on the security features of the system. Andrew reported that the system was “as secure as some banks”.
LINC-ED allows teachers to share learning anytime, anywhere and this can be viewed on any device. We are excited about the potential that the software offers. The report is designed to build year on year so that over time you will have access to comments, assessments, images, video and helpful resources all in one place.
How do I access my child’s LINC-ED page?
Visit (enter the link to your school’s LINC-ED lost password url).
Your username is the email address that you have previously shared with the school. Enter your email and then click Get New Password.
An email will be sent to you containing a link for you to click on. The link will take you to a page where you will see your new password. If you choose to personalise this, you can delete the generated password and enter your own strong, secure password.
Enjoy reading, viewing and listening to your child’s learning. Become part of the conversation by writing a comment or giving a post a “sparkle”.
If you have any problems with access please contact: add the details of your school’s LINC-ED administrator.
