If you're an administrator of Google accounts for an organization, you can control who uses CS First from their account. Just turn CS First on or off for those people in your Admin console.
When CS First is turned on
- Go to https://csfirst.withgoogle.com/login and sign in with their Google Workspace account.
- Go to https://csfirst.withgoogle.com/dashboard and open the teacher- or student-specific pages. These pages allow users to save and view student-created projects, privately share projects between students and teachers, track progress, connect with Google Classroom, and more. For details, go to Benefits of creating a CS First Class.
When CS First is turned off
- Open publicly available content on the CS First homepage, all CS First curriculum, the resources page and the about page.
- Open and use the Scratch for CS First editor.
- Users are signed out of CS First and have to sign in.
- Users who sign in to https://csfirst.withgoogle.comget an error message directing them to contact their domain administrator.
- Users not signed in to CS First can't go to https://csfirst.withgoogle.com/dashboard and open the teacher- or student-specific pages.
Users not signed in to CS First who open the Scratch for CS First editor can't save their work in CS First. However, users can download projects to their computer.
