This articles describes all of the various features of a class found in the 'Student Tab'.

Change a Student's Password

Click the 'Reset Password' to the right of the student's username.

  • Verify that you really want to reset the password by clicking 'Reset Password'.
  • The password is always reset to the username. So it is easy for the teacher to tell the student that his username and password are now the same.
  • When the student logs in again, he will be asked to reset his password.
Add a Student

While it is easier to give a class a student enrollment PIN to access their ebooks, on occasion a new student enters your classroom. In this case, adding a student directly may be the quickest way to get the new student his materials to start your class.

  • If a student enrolled the previous year or transferred from another class at your school, he may already be in the system.  
  • Search for the student and select him from the list.
  • Then click 'Add Student'.  The student will receive all of the eBooks associated with the class.

If no matching student shows in the search list, he is probably a new student at your school. Click 'Create New Student'.

  1. Select a username that is accepted by our system as indicated when the green check mark shows.
  2. An email is required so that students can retrieve their passwords should they forget it.  However, student emails are not kept in plain text in our system and are not retrievable. The green checkmark indicates that no other user in our system has the same encrypted email.
  3. Choose a password easy for you to remember to give to the student.  The student will change the password when they login unless they login through the Google button.  

The new student account will now be listed in your class list.


Remove a Student

Navigate to a class where you have a student to remove.

  • Removing a student is effectively removing the class licenses from the student.
