We can save you some time by creating a school account on your behalf. This will allow you to manage your pupils as a group, check activity, academic progress and manage security settings.
By enabling School Mode you can lock down the security settings for your class. Pupils will only be able to see and interact with each other, thereby allowing them to experience safe and supervised social networking.
To set up a school account please contact us.
Pora Ora is completely free to use in school - there is no catch! In this tough economic climate it offers you a free alternative to other paid-for educational resources.
Schools tend to operate very strict policies on which sites can be accessed from their I.T. network. You may experience firewall issues when you first try to connect to Pora Ora in school. Don't worry, this is easy to rectify. We can advise which ports need to be opened to access Pora Ora in your school.
In addition, you will need to install the Unity 3D Web Player plugin the first time you access Pora Ora.
Please contact us if you experience any access issues and our dedicated Technicians will be happy to help.
Pora Ora is designed to run on a wide range of hardware, operating systems and browsers. For full details of our minimum and recommended specifications, please consult the System Requirements.
