Creating Classrooms & Adding Students

How to create classrooms and have students join.

For Educators

The most important thing to keep in mind when creating your classrooms is that classes created with the Username option will not be compatible with classes created with the Email option. We suggest deciding which will work best for you, your students and your school and sticking with that same option for all of your classes

1. Create your own avatar.

2. Select My Classroom tab.

3. Click New Classroom.

4. Name the class.

5. Select grade level(s).

6. Select subject (if grade 6 or above)

7. Select special options.

8. Choose Google or Usernames option.

9. If Usernames option is chosen, add students.

10. Send the link from your classroom to the students.

11. If Google option is chosen, share this article with your students: Joining A Class With An Email Address.

If Usernames option is chosen, share this article with your students: Joining A Class With Your Username.
