Using Classwork with iPad
Classwork is an iPad app for students and teachers that makes it easy to share and receive content, collaborate and integrate app activities into class instruction and homework assignments, wherever learning is happening.
Using simple, integrated workflows, students and teachers can share and collaborate — even when students are out of the classroom. Teachers can assign students anything from PDFs, links and documents, to activities within an app. Teachers can easily view class and student progress data, use the data to better understand how students are doing, and individualise instruction based on student needs. For students, messages and assignments automatically appear on their iPad, organised by class and deadline. In this way, they have a single place to find content and instruction, submit work and view their own progress.
Classwork requires the use of Managed Apple IDs and the roll in Apple School Manager. Complete the steps below to get students and teachers set up with Classwork:
Create Managed Apple IDs for students and teachers: This gives them access to Classwork. For more information, see Use Managed Apple IDs in the Apple School Manager User Guide.
Set up classes and the roll in Apple School School Manager: Classes included in SIS connections or SFTP uploads automatically create Classwork classes for you. Classwork is also automatically updated as students move in and out of classes in Apple School Manager. You can also manually create classes in Apple School Manager and allow teachers to add, edit, remove and delete classes in Classwork by enabling the “Create, edit and delete classes” privilege for the Instructor role in Apple School Manager.
Get the Classwork app: Get the Classwork app in the Apps and Books sidebar in Apple School Manager and install it on teacher and student devices.
Turn on student progress in Classwork: Enable student progress for your organisation in Apple School Manager. Instructors can see how students are doing on assigned activities in any ClassKit-enabled app when the student progress feature in Classwork is enabled. You can still use Classwork even if you don’t enable this feature. For more information, see Use Classwork to manage student progress in the Apple School Manager User Guide.
Tell students and teachers how to log in: Instruct students and teachers to use their Managed Apple ID to log in to iPad. When they open Classwork, they have access to all their classes.
