Apple School Manager automatically creates classes when you connect your Student Information System (SIS) or upload content from your SFTP. These classes automatically appear in Schoolwork and you can use Apple School Manager to edit the name. For classes not in your SIS or SFTP upload, like an after-school club, you can manually create a class.
Learn which roles can create and edit classes
Administrators, Site Managers, People Managers, and Managers can create, edit, and delete classes in Apple School Manager. Instructors can also manage classes if their privileges are modified by an Administrator, Site Manager, or People Manager. Learn how to change a role's privileges.
Manually create a class
- Sign in to Apple School Manager.
- Click Classes in the sidebar.
- Click .
- In the Class Name field, enter a class name. This name will appear in Schoolwork for teachers and students.
- You can optionally enter a course name, class ID, and class number.
- Select a location, then add teachers and students.
- Click Save.
You can edit classes that you or others manually created at your location.
For classes automatically created from your SIS or SFTP upload, you can edit the class name that is shown in Schoolwork. By default, the class name is copied from the Course Name and Class Number fields defined in SIS or SFTP.
If a class that is used for Schoolwork is deleted in your SIS or SFTP upload, it will be converted to a manual class in Apple School Manager. This lets teachers preserve or reuse their existing Handouts in new classes.
If you manually delete a class in Apple School Manager that was previously used with Schoolwork, all Handouts and data will be deleted.
The Schoolwork app is named Classwork in Australia and New Zealand.
