NoodleTools Tutorials

This guide provides tutorials to help you use NoodleTools.

West Sound Academy uses Google Sign-on to access NoodleTools instead of Personal IDs and passwords. 

Returning students and staff:
See the box below for the three options for logging into NoodleTools: How to log into NoodleTools through Google



How to log into NoodleTools through Google (for returning students)


NoodleTools app           Step 1: 

Begin by entering NoodleTools via any of these three options:

Option 1: Google app launcher (not available for iPad/mobile users)

From your WSA email, open the Google app launcher (the menu with 9 squares, sometimes called the "waffle" menu) as pictured to the right and scroll down to the bottom, where you'll find 3rd-party apps.

Click the NoodleTools icon.

You can open NoodleTools from a customized link that matches West Sound Academy's Google domain:

NoodleTools sign in pageOption 3: "Google" button on the NoodleTools sign in page

Click the "Google" button on the sign in page at:











Step 2: 

You may be prompted to select your Google account if you are not already logged in or if you are logged into multiple Google accounts.

Choose an account

If you've logged in this way before, the NoodleTools Projects screen will open and you're done! If you have not entered through Google before, the "Account Setup" window will open.

Option 1: Creating a new/empty account

If you are a new user, leave the "Create account" tab selected (default). Choose "I am a student or library patron" (default) or "I am a teacher or librarian." Click Create Account. 

Account Setup Step 1

Option 2: Linking to a previously-created account

If this is the first time you are entering NoodleTools through Google but you logged in previously via a personal ID and password (i.e., your school has switched to use Google for access recently, or you had a trial account), select the "I have an existing account" tab instead of "Create account." You will be prompted to enter your old Personal ID and password. Click Link Account. NoodleTools will link your old account to your Google ID.

Account Setup Step 2


If you complete the "Account Setup" step and then realize you’ve made an error, you can unlink your NoodleTools account from your Google ID to start over. For example, you might have linked to the wrong ID/password (sometimes students have made multiple accounts), or you may have created a new/empty account when you intended to link to an existing one. To unlink your ID, go to your user profile, click the link icon in the left blue panel, and click Unlinkon the right.

Accessing the NoodleTools Companion app: 

To access the NoodleTools Companion iOS/Android app, locate the "Companion Key" in your NoodleTools user profile and use that key as the password (and your Google email as the username).
