Set up your teacher-created class in Classroom
You can create a teacher-created class with Classroom without using an MDM solution.
Enter your information and create your first class
Open the Classroom app on your Mac, then enter the name you want your students to see (For example, Mr. Smith).
Click the image icon to take or choose a photo, then click Done.
To change it later, click on your icon in the upper left and change your name or photo.
Click Create Class, then enter the name for your class and an optional description, select an icon and background color for that class, then click Create.
Create additional classes
Open the Classroom app on your Mac, then click Add in the Classroom window or in the toolbar.
Enter the name for your class and an optional description, select an icon and background color for that class.
Edit or remove a class
Open the Classroom app on your Mac, then select the class you want to edit or remove.
Do one of the following:
Click Info in the lower left of the class icon or in the upper right of the toolbar to change the name, description, icon, or background color for the class, then click Update.
Click Remove Class, then click Remove Class again.
Invite students to join your class
Your advertised class is ready for enrollment, and a student can browse for that class by choosing Settings > Classroom on their iPad. Students add the class by entering a four-digit PIN (personal identification number) provided by you. A student can join more than one class—by the same or different teachers—making it easy for students to move from room to room with their iPad.
Open the Classroom app on your Mac, then double-click the class you want to use, then click Add Students.
Note: It may take up to 10 seconds for the class to appear.
Tell the students to do one of the following:
On their Mac, choose System Preferences > Classroom and add click “Add Class name.”
On their iPad, choose Settings > Classroom and add tap “Add Class name.”
If your students have a Me Card, they can use or change their name and photo.
Let the students know the four-digit PIN that appears at the top of the “Add student to this Class” window.
After a student adds the class, that student appears in the window. A checkbox appears next to the students’ names, indicating they’re going to be part of this group.
Review the list of students and deselect the ones you don’t want in the class, then click Add.
You can add more students at any time.
After you have students in your class, you can now manage the class experience. See the following:
