Of course, in this ever changing world of technology – Wylio has changed slightly since I first posted about it!
Due to it’s growing popularity ….. Wylio now requires you to create a free account & login to use.  You can use your google account if you have one!

My advice, for classroom teachers would be to create a class google account for Wylio – one email address, one password – for the whole class to remember.
(A class google account can come in handy for all kinds of other things in the classroom – another blog post for later).

  1. Hi Ms. H!

    Today Mrs. Melhorn showed us about Wylio on your blog! Kei had looked at your blog and used some pictures of the Grand Canyon for a post, and the pictures were from Wylio! Wylio seems much easier than Comfight. I think I might start using it! Thanks! Your blog has a ton of things and posts on it that help me learn!!

    • Because you have a class google account (for your YouTube channel) I’d use that google account to sign up for wylio – it’s still free – it’s just that they are collecting their user data now.
