Your edify account
You can access everything related to your edify account at me.edify.ac. If you already have your own account or access to an institutional account, you can use your details to log in here.
If you are having trouble logging in, please refer to our Log In Troubleshooting page.
Creating an edify account
If you don’t yet have an edify account, click on Register Here. You will then be asked to enter a few basic details about yourself. Once you are happy with your details, click on Register.
You will then be sent an email asking to you to click on a link to verify your email address. Note: remember to check your Junk folder if your email does not arrive. Once you have verified your account, you will be able to log into your edify account.
Upon creating your account, you will have a free trial to edify for a month, giving you access to all of edify’s features. While edify is in beta, all licensing is handled directly by edify. If you have any questions concerning your edify license, contact your institutional rep, or get in touch with our commercial team.
Managing your edify account
Once you have logged in, you will arrive at your edify account dashboard. From here, you can edit your profile and account details. You can also create your edify avatar by clicking on Virtual Avatar in the header. For more information on your avatar, check out our Avatar page.
Your first step for installing edify is to download the edify launcher by clicking on Download Edify in your account dashboard. This will download a file called “EdifyLauncherSetup.exe”, which will then be accessible through your downloads folder.
Running this file will start a short installation wizard. You can choose a directory to install edify in, although in most cases you can leave this setting as the default.
The install itself should only take a few seconds. If you are finding it is taking much longer, try restarting the installation. If your problems continue, please refer to our troubleshooting materials or get in touch and we can work out a solution.
Using the edify launcher
When the installer finishes, you will have access to the edify launcher. The launcher acts as a hub for all of your edify lessons, as well as software and content. If the launcher does not open automatically, you can access it by typing ‘edify’ into your start menu.
When you first open the launcher, you will be asked to log in using your edify details. If you are having trouble logging in, please submit a support ticket.
Your next step is to download the Lesson Creator. You can do this by navigating the left-hand-side menu and clicking on Updates. This tab shows the edify programs available to you, including the edify stock lessons.
To create your own lessons, find the box labelled Lesson Creator and click on Install. The launcher will then automatically download the Lesson Creator for you. This is a large file and may take a few minutes depending on your internet connection.
Once the Lesson Creator has finished downloading, you are ready to start using creating your own virtual lessons! Just use the menu to navigate to My lessons and click on Create new lesson to develop transform your lessons into an immersive experience.
