This FAQ answers the most frequently asked questions about using Seterra for remote learning.

If you don't find the answer to your question below, or if you want to offer feedback or report a bug, please email marianne@seterra.com.

Can I use the Seterra website for remote learning without getting a Seterra membership?

Yes, you definitely can. You can let your students use the standard quizzes on the website for free, of course. You can also create custom quizzes, and email the links to your students, even if you don't have an account. However, you will not be able to add custom locations or leaderboards to your quizzes, and the quizzes will be deleted when not used by anyone for 30 days.

I am a teacher. Can I get a free Seterra membership when my school is closed due to COVID-19?

Yes. Read more details here.

I am not a teacher. Can I still get a free Seterra membership?

No, our offer is for teachers affected by school closures only. You can get a paid membership for only 1 USD per month via Patreon.com. Even without a membership though, most of the content and functionality on the site is available, so you can still use it for your kids' homework or homeschooling!

Do I need to get an account for each of my students so that they can log in to the site?

No. When Seterra is used in schools or for remote learning, the students are generally not logged in. By simply sharing a link with them, you can provide access to your custom quizzes and let students enter their scores on your public leaderboards.

Can I get the iOS or Android app for my students for free?

No, we do not offer a free or discounted version of the Seterra apps at the moment. The free accounts we're providing to teachers are only for the website (online.seterra.com).

You need a Seterra membership in order to be able to add a public leaderboard. The students using the quiz do not need to be logged in.

Can my students use the Seterra app instead of the Seterra website?

For remote learning, it is probably easier if everyone uses the website (online.seterra.com). The site works well on smartphones and tablets. While it is possible to import custom quizzes to the app, some capabilities offered on the website will not be available; for example, app users won't be able to enter their scores on the public leaderboards.
