Overview: If your school or college has enabled access through Clever, signing in to NoodleTools is simple and you won't need to remember a separate username and password.

This article applies to: 

✔︎ NoodleTools School Subscription

 NoodleTools Individual License

 NoodleTools MLA Lite

 NoodleTools Express


Step 1:

Begin by entering NoodleTools via either of these two options:

Option 1: Your Clever portal 

Click the "NoodleTools" button on your school's Clever portal page.

Option 2: "Clever" button on the NoodleTools sign in page 

Click the "Clever" button on the right side of the sign in page at:


Step 2: 

If you use Option 2 above, you may be prompted to log in to your Clever account if you aren't already.

If you've logged in through Clever before, the NoodleTools Projects screen will open and you're done! If you have not entered through Clever before, the "Account Setup" window will open. 

Account Setup window, step 1: 

If your subscription covers multiple schools, you may need to select your specific school from a dropdown list. In some cases, you may also be required to enter a "school code," which is a 6-digit password specific to your school (ask your teacher or librarian if you don't know it). Click Continue.

In cases where we don't require this information, you will skip step 1 and be taken directly to step 2 of Account Setup.

Account Setup window, step 2:

Option 1: Creating a new/empty account

If you are a new user, leave the "Create account" tab selected (default). Choose "I am a student or library patron" (default) or "I am a teacher or librarian." Click Create Account

Option 2: Linking to a previously-created account

If this is the first time you are entering NoodleTools through Clever but you logged in previously via a personal ID and password (i.e., your school has switched to use Clever for access recently, or you had a trial account), select the "I have an existing account" tab instead of "Create account." You will be prompted to enter your old Personal ID and password. Click Link Account. NoodleTools will link your old account to your Clever ID. 


If you complete the "Account Setup" step and then realize you’ve made an error, you can unlink your NoodleTools account from your Clever ID to start over. For example, you might have linked to the wrong ID/password (sometimes students have made multiple accounts), or you may have created a new/empty account when you intended to link to an existing one. To unlink your ID, go to your user profile, click the link icon in the left blue panel, and click Unlink on the right. 

Accessing the NoodleTools Companion app: 

To access the NoodleTools Companion iOS/Android app, locate the "Companion Key" in your NoodleTools user profile and use that key as the password (and your Clever ID as the username).
