Mango Languages: Step-by-Step

an overview of database features

(1) UCF Faculty - Request an Instructor-Level Account

Once your account is created and you have responded to the authentication email, log into your account.

(2) Select the Groups icon

Mango Language sidebar menu - select Groups

(3) Create a new group

Create a separate group for each section of a course. Create a new group each semester.

Mango Languages - Create a Group

Two instructors cannot co-own a single group. If two instructors are co-teaching a class or a GTA is assisting with the class, each instructor/GTA needs to create their own group. Then have each of the students in the class join both groups. Each instructor will see identical information about the student activity.

(4) Name the group using the following format

Use this specific format to name the group for your course so that the site administrator can manage the hundreds of groups that will be created. Start with the semester designation followed by the course and section number. Do not include spaces. Use a single dash to separate the semester from the course number and a single dash to separate the course number from the section number.

  • Spring 2016 = 2016S
  • Summer 2016 = 2016Su
  • Fall 2016 = 2016F

If you are creating a group that doesn't have a course number, still identify the semester as the first part of the name, then NA, then a meaningful descriptive name. Examples: 2016S-NA-BelizeProject, 2016Su-NA-ELI-Level2, 2016F-NA-FCTLWinterConference

Mango Languages - name the course group

Do NOT use the box to invite students using their email addresses. There is a much easier method described below.

(5) Have your students create their individual accounts

The instructions to provide to your students for joining your class are on the Students page of this guide.

(6) Provide the invite code for your group to the enrolled students

Do not use the virtual classroom option to send the students an email. You'll have to enter the email address for all students and what you enter will need to match the email addresses they used to create their Mango accounts.

(7) Look through the Instructor Guides to identify relevant modules

(8) Tell the students which modules they should select to work through.

(9) Some modules have placement and assessment tests
