Great news for schools using Microsoft Education: COOL now offers simplified access to all your educational apps and content in seconds. At COOL, we’re always improving our products and services to make online learning easy and accessible for everyone. Find out what’s new at a glance!

As of today, your COOL space will have a revamped login screen. No worries though, we’ve only made a few small but helpful improvements. You’ll have super-fast access to all your educational apps and contents, just like you used to. 

So what’s new? 

In this blog, we’ll bring you up to speed on the changes and show you everything you need to know.


Easier access for Microsoft users

As always, you can log into COOL in a matter of seconds, using either one (or a combination) of our Easy login options for younger students or your email address and password. However, your updated COOL login screen also includes a new option that will come in handy for anyone using Microsoft 365 Education for online learning and work.

With the additional ‘Microsoft’ option, you can log straight into COOL using your Microsoft account. Plus, when you choose this option, you will also be instantly logged into all Microsoft applications that you access through COOL. Super convenient!


What will it look like?

  1. The option ‘Email login’ option will change to: ‘Email login (Google)’. You can choose this option when you want to log in with your Google account.
  2. Below ‘Email login (Google)’ you’ll now also find the option ‘Microsoft’. You want to log in with a Microsoft account? Then this option is for you.

Not sure what option is best for you? Click on the ?-icon or on the text ‘Not sure what to choose’ for some additional explanation. You can also always ask your own school IT administrator for help!
