Creating an Edutopia account

Why should I create an Edutopia account?
An account allows you to subscribe to our free newsletters and personalize your Edutopia experience. This means we’ll highlight content you might like based on your role, grade-level preferences, and/or subject areas of expertise—if you’ve shared that information with us. Edutopia accounts are free, and we don’t share your information with anyone else.

How do I sign up for an Edutopia account?
Signing up is quick and easy. If you’re new to Edutopia, you can sign up using your Google or Facebook login. Or, if you prefer, you can use an email and password of your choice. Sign up here.

I am an email subscriber. Does that mean I have an Edutopia account?
Not necessarily. If you subscribed to the Edutopia Weekly newsletter prior to July 2020, you may not have an account. To level up, sign up for a free account. It’s the first step to personalizing your newsletters and the website based on your interests.

Signing in to Edutopia

Help! I forgot my password.
No worries—it happens. To regain access to your account, please reset your password. You will be asked to enter your email address, and we will send you an email message containing a security code and instructions to reset your password. The code is valid for one hour.

Managing your account

My email address changed. How do I update it?
If you signed up using an email address and password combination, you can update your email address anytime from your account dashboard. When you do, we will send a message to both the old address and the new one to confirm the change. If you signed up using a Google or Facebook account, you cannot edit the email address associated with your account.

How do I manage my interests?
To see and manage your saved interests, sign in to and go to your account dashboard.

How do I subscribe to the Edutopia Weekly email newsletter?
When you sign up for an account on, you can opt in to our weekly email newsletter. You can also turn on this newsletter subscriptions via your account dashboard.

How do I subscribe to The Research Is In newsletter?
An account is required to subscribe to The Research Is In, and the option to do so is at the bottom of your account dashboard.

How do I unsubscribe from Edutopia’s newsletters?
To stop receiving an email newsletter, you can click the ‘Unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of any message. Or, you can manage your newsletter subscriptions by going to your account dashboard.

How do I delete my account?
Before you go, there are a few things you should know. If you want to unsubscribe from an Edutopia’s email newsletter, you do not need to delete your account. You can make that change from your account dashboard. You can also change and/or remove your interests there, as well.

Please note that there is no way to reactivate an account once it has been deleted, although you can always create a new one.
