Buying and Distributing Seats

Instructors and administrators can buy student subscription seats for Pivot Interactives. Each seat gives one student to access to one class in Pivot Interactives for one year for high school purchases and for one semester for college purchases. When you make a purchase, you will receive an Activation Code in an email. This code can be used to activate seats in any instructor's account. Here are some things to know about purchasing seats using activation codes:

  • Each purchase has an activation code associated with it, and a number of student subscription seats.
  • Instructors use the activation code to activate seats into their account so that students can join their classes.
  • Once activated, each seat allows one additional student to be enrolled in an instructors class for one year (for high school) or one semester (college), starting from the date the seat is activated.
  • Un-activated seats can remain attached to an purchase code indefinitely.
