One thing that also happened with the release of version 4 of Promethean Classflow is the launch of the UK version of the service. The UK version of Classflow runs off a different server to the .com version, and so you will need a separate login.

But don’t worry, it is possible to link up the accounts though, so you can still access resources already created on your .com login.

I thought it might be useful to put together a quick guide for UK Promethean users to show how to switch and link up your accounts.

Linking up your accounts.

If you’ve already been playing with the .com version of Classflow, then you’ll first need to sign up for a new account at the UK version of Classflow at www.classflow.co.uk.

Once your account is activated and logged in, click on My Resources at the top of the screen.

You should be able to see a link to My ClassFlow.com Drive. Click on that, and enter the login details that you previously used for the .com version of classflow.

This will link up the two accounts and let you access your .com files on the .co.uk service.

It’s also worth noting that this is also where you can link your Classflow account to Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive if you want to use these cloud services too.

Switching ActivInspire to UK

One of the useful features of Classflow is the ability to use it within ActivInspire to run polls and quizzes by connecting student devices using your class code.

This defaults to the US version, so you’ll need to switch over ActivInspire to use your new UK account.

In ActivInspire click on the Classflow bar in the top right of your screen, then click on Settings.

Alternatively click on Edit -> Profiles -> Classflow.

Click on Account to change/enter your login details. Use your .co.uk details here.

Click on Server Address and change the server connection address from https://classflow.com to classflow.co.uk

Switching Classflow Desktop

If you have downloaded the Classflow Desktop app, again you will need to switch to the UK server.

Click on Settings on the side of the screen. Change the Server URL from .com to .co.uk

And that’s it. You should now be able to access your Classflow.co.uk account however you want to! US users should continue to use the Classflow.com site as before.

I’m still getting to grips with the new version of Classflow, I hope to get a few guides written soon. Watch this space.
