There are two ways to add classes to a TypingClub account: individually or in bulk. Whichever method you choose, keep in mind that every class will have our default lesson plan Typing Jungle assigned automatically. The default lesson plan can be changed in the Lesson Plans section of your administration portal.
TypingClub provides admins with powerful tools to set up their classes. If only a small number of classes need to be added to an account, the easiest way is to add them one by one:
To start adding classes one by one, go to Classes on the left side of the page and click the + Add Class button. There are a number of settings configurable on this page; you can either set them now or update them later.
When you are finished, click the Add Class button to see your new class. The next step is enrolling students in the class.
When setting up a larger account, you may wish to use our Data Import Tool to add multiple classes at once instead of adding them manually.
Once you've checked your default lesson plan, go to Tools Data Import Tool. Here you can see instructions on how to prepare a CSV file with your classes. Clicking the classes link will give you information on the required fields in the classes.csv file, as well as the option to download an example file. You can also download a template by clicking here: Data Import Tool Class CSV template file. For more details on the Data Import Tool, please refer to this PDF.
Let's take a look at the fields required for a successful upload:
Once you have created your CSV file, make sure to save it, return to the Data Import Tool page, and upload the file. Uploading may take a couple of minutes depending on the size of the file. Check the Classes tab to make sure the classes from your spreadsheet have populated in your account.
