The first step in creating your session is to select a subject from the dropdown menu. If you would like to include the Budget Game in your class, you will need to select Personal Finance.
Your service level will determine the maximum length of your class, and the maximum number of trades each student can make.
To add a promotional code from a textbook, make sure to select the author’s name from the dropdown menu.
If you have a site license, you will not be asked for a service level. Site license clients have no restrictions on class lengths and no trade caps (although we can add trade limits to your class if you like).
You can add a Buy and Hold portfolio to most other service levels for $6 per student account. This allows your students to manage an active and passive portfolio simultaneously.
Please note that futures trading is only available to academic customers.
Allowed Exchanges: we currently only support international securities for equities, spots (for currency trading), and futures (mutual funds, bonds, and options are US-only).
You can select all the exchanges, by clicking the button at the top, or individually select any of the available options below. Please contact our support team if you need any assistance at email@example.com.
You also have the option to add assignments to your class. For a more in-depth tutorial, please use this how-to guide.
Assignments are list of tasks you give your students to complete. You can track their progress from the Assignment Report Card page.
Assignments include watching tutorial videos on how to manage their portfolio and how to trade, reading lessons and completing pop quizzes on investing, personal finance and other financial literacy topics or placing certain types of orders or making a certain number of trades.

Once you’ve completed all these steps, you’ll be taken to the Confirmation Page. You will also receive a copy by email.
