The Services may be available collectively to all types of Accounts or only to specific Account types.

Student IDs maybe organized and grouped together as Classes that display data from all the Student IDs in the Class..
Registered Users with Administrator Accounts have access to classes of multiple Educator Accounts to provide an overview of learning activity in their institution. For Administrator to access the data, both Administrator and Educator must ensure they are part of the same institution and give permission within the service. Administrators may also invite Users from their institution to register for an Educator Account.
Users with Student IDs may access, download, update or delete games through TeacherGaming App. TeacherGaming App submits data along with the Student ID to TeacherGaming Desk to provide services for Educator and Administrator Accounts.
