Getting Started with InterestID

What is InterestID?

InterestID is a tool designed to connect teachers with lessons based on the interests of their students. Students browse through the hundreds of interesting topics that NextLesson has developed its content around, indicating whether they like or dislike different topics. As students engage with the InterestID browser, they build an Interest Profile. Students' interest data is shared via the teacher's InterestID Report when they join a class.

How to Use InterestID

  • Each student needs a NextLesson account and must have joined a class created in your Class Manager.
  • Students should spend 30-45 minutes using the InterestID Browser, indicating their likes and dislikes, to build their interest profiles.
  • This data will be available in your InterestID Report, including lesson recommendations, based on top interests in your class.

Tip: Encourage students to update their interests by signing in periodically from home, during free time in class, when finished with other assignments, or quickly rating a few interests in the carousel at the bottom of their homepage each time they log in to NextLesson.
