Every adult account (> 13 years age) has the ability to use Khan Academy as a parent, teacher, or student.
If you already have a Khan Academy account:
To switch to your default dashboard, you can always click on "Khan Academy" or "Home" at the top of the screen. This will work if you are in a child or adult account.
To switch between the dashboards in an adult account, click your name at the top right of the screen.
- "Learning home" will take you to your student/learner page where you can see the subjects you have started learning.
- "Your students" will take you to the coach/teacher page where you can view your students' progress and make recommendations.
- "Your children" will take you to the parent page where you can view your children's progress.
If you are creating a Khan Academy account:
By clicking the "Teachers, start here" button when signing up, by default, you will be directed to set up a class and will receive teacher/coach related e-mails. If you click "Parents, start here", you will automatically be sent to a screen where you can create a child account or link your account to your child's existing account. However, all adult accounts have the ability to create classes and create child accounts.
