How do I log in?
You’ll need to enter you Center ID, User ID and Password in the login area, which can be found on the top right of the website.
I’ve forgotten or don’t know my user ID.
Your user ID is typically your student ID number or a common log-in used at school for computer access. Consult your teacher if you are unsure of your user ID.
I’ve forgotten or don’t know my password.
At the start, your password is the same as your user ID, so try that first. If that does not work, you can try resetting your password by answering your ‘secret question’. If you have not set up a secret question, you will need to ask your teacher to reset your password.
I’ve forgotten or don’t know my school’s Center ID.
Use the ‘Can’t log in?’ function to find your Center ID using you school’s zipcode.
Can I use Penda Learning at home?
Absolutely! There is no restriction on where you are when you access the site. You can even do your homework on school vacations/breaks in another country, as long as the Internet connection is good enough.
Does this work on my phone?
Penda Learning will work on a smartphone, but it's not optimal. That means you will have to zoom, shrink and move the screen around a lot to complete your activities. You will get a much better experience using Penda Learning on a tablet, iPad, or larger screen resolution.
How can I get more points?
Do more activities! Avoid doing the same activities too many times as after the third time you will no longer receive any points.
Will teachers see which questions I get wrong/incorrect?
If they have set them as an assignment/homework for you then, depending on the activity type, yes.
Can I remove myself from the leaderboard?
Yes. In the ‘My Profile’ section you can opt out of the leaderboard.
How do I move through Penda Worlds?
Complete activities and earn points to move through the Penda Worlds. After you complete each location, you can choose where you go next.
How do I change my friends?
You can select different friends in the ‘My Profile’ section.
Can I send a message to my teacher, classmates, or friends?
No, not through Penda Learning.
How do I check my progress for a subject?
Click on the ‘My Progress’ tab. You can also show your parent/guardian how you are progressing with Penda Learning.
Why should I do an activity more that once?
If you don’t get 100% on your first attempt, you should try again. As your score improves, your teacher can see that you are making progress. You also get more points for your second or third attempt.
I only get Penda Learning homework in Science. Should I do other subjects?
Yes, feel free to use the ‘Activities’ pages to complete activities in any subject you like.
