Help and Support

As the Frog Administrator (Frog Admin) you will be responsible for reporting any issues with your Frog VLE, 4G internet connectivity or Google Chromebooks to the 1BestariNet Helpdesk. Issues may range from no connectivity within your school to an issue with one of the applications or widgets within your Frog VLE.
The Head Teacher of each school will be the primary contact for the 1BestariNet Helpdesk, as well as 3 designated contacts.  These will be the people that will report any issues you are having with Frog.

If you have an issue, the first thing to do is to check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) section.

If you can’t find your answer in the FAQ section, there are 3 ways in which you can contact the 1BestariNet Helpdesk:
  • By internet (via the self-service portal)
  • By e-mail
  • By telephone
The following pages will explain how to contact and create a support incident as well as using the self-care portal.

The Self-Care Portal

The first way to contact the 1BestariNet Helpdesk is via the self-care portal.
Not only can you raise incidents here, but you can also check on any outstanding or previous incidents as well as close off any incidents that have been fixed.

To login to the self-care portal please go to:


This will present a login box. Enter your username and password into the boxes to log in.  The username will be your school code and your password will be issued to you via your 1bestarinet email address.  When you first login you will be asked to change your password.
Your password must contain an uppercase letter, a number and a special character.  It must be a minimum of 6 characters long.  The same username and password will be used by the 4 support contacts in the school.
If you forget your password, click on Forgot Password?  For the User Name, enter your school code. For the Email Address, enter the school’s official 1bestarinet email. Clicking on the Submit button will issue a new password to this email address.
Once you have logged in you will see the home screen. This gives you details of any announcements, incidents you have raised and the contacts for your school.


The Announcements area displays important messages from the support desk. In the event of experiencing an issue always check the Announcements area first.
The main menu contains links to the different areas of the portal that you can access.
