Can I use ActivInspire 2.x without using or registering for ClassFlow?

Yes, you can continue to use ActivInspire as you do today. Using ClassFlow will provide you with extra functionality, but it is not required.

Just about any device can be used as a ClassFlow Student device. Your students can connect to www.classflow.com/student using their computer’s web browser.

Which web browsers are supported by ClassFlow?

The latest versions of Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari. Firefox and Edge are not supported.

How do I register ClassFlow Student devices in ActivInspire 2.x?

Click the Connect button on the ActivInspire menu bar, then register and/or sign in to ClassFlow. Your students should launch their computer or device browser and navigate to www.classflow.com/student. Students should enter their names and the Class Code to join your class.

I’ve clicked Connect. Why is there an error?

Error messages about Internet connectivity indicate that ActivInspire is unable to reach the ClassFlow server. This is usually due to your school’s proxy settings. Open ActivInspire’s Settings menu, select Online Settings and enter your proxy settings.
