Adding Students and Teachers in Kurzweil 3000

1. Log into kurzweil3000.com with a teacher or coordinator account.

2. Hover over My Account

3. Select Users, your team page will open

4. Select the "Everyone" button that will appear next to "My Team"

5. This will give you three sub-tabs "Students, Teachers, Add Users": 

What is "My Team" and why is it important?

A Team is a group of users that need to interact with one another. You could think of it as a "Class", for example a Teacher's team would usually have their students that are in their class. However teams are more than classes, as teachers can be part of the same team if they wish to collaborate with one another.

Having users in the same team allows them to share data. Please note however that students will not be able to share data with each other directly; see some examples below.


To add someone to your team:

  1. Hover the cursor over the My Account tab and choose Users from the drop-down menu.
  2. Click the Everyone icon.
  3. Find the user that you want to add to your Team and click the "My Team" check-box to the right of the user information.

Are there any suggestions on how to structure my users / teams?

Before adding a new user, it's recommended to search to see if that user already exists. It's recommended that each teacher search for and add students to his or her team that the teacher wants to use Kurzweil 3000 with. This way, a teacher can distribute files and administrate these users.

Are there other ways to add users?

Option 1: If you qualify for a user import or wish to inquire about adding users in bulk please contact: kurzweil3000roster@kurzweiledu.com ; in your email please make sure to reference that you are interested in the import process. If your account qualifies you will be sent an excel template for importing users along with further instructions.

Option 2: There is also an option called "Self-Registration", please see below for details on the process:

Links to the self-registration form enable teachers and students to add themselves to the general Kurzweil 3000 roster which is accessible through the "Everyone" section. Please note that only the top-level coordinator can initiate self-registration. Self-Registration does not automatically add a student or teacher to a team. If the student or teacher needs to be part of a specific team, please assign them to one after they are in the roster.

1. Log into kurzweil3000.com with a teacher or coordinator account. Hover the cursor over the My Account tab and select Users from the drop-down menu. Your My Team page opens.

2. Click User Self-Registration. A window opens that displays a link for you to copy and send to teachers and a link for you to copy and send to students. Note: Because teachers and students have different privileges, it's important to send the correct link.

3. Click Copy next to the appropriate link (Teacher self-registration or Student self-registration).

4. Open your email application and address an email to the teachers or students you want to self-register.

5. In the message section of the email, paste the link you copied from the self-registration window.

6. Send.
