How to Enroll Students

The school portal is different than the public facing site, as it requires your students to be uploaded to your account and enrolled in classes before they can start practicing. Getting a student set up is a two step process:

  1. Upload the student to your account.
  2. Enroll the student in one or more classes.

If a student is signed up but is not enrolled in any classes, he or she will be able to sign in but will not be able to do much beyond that. They will see a blank activity list on the right side of their screen which will encourage them to consult with you on what to do next. You should go to the classes tab to create new classes and enroll your students in it.

TypingClub School Edition also provides you with an optional sign-up link on your portal URL that will allow your students to sign up by themselves. Furthermore, you can set up each class to allow students who have signed in to identify themselves as a member of that class, and simply join it. How you wish to proceed with your class setup is entirely up to you.

Keep reading for step-by-step instructions on three different methods for enrolling students in the classes.

Manual Setup

This option will give you the most control over defining your student list and configuring what each student can work on. Use this option if you have a clean student roster that you can import into TypingClub. Many schools with younger students use this option to avoid confusing their students.

  1. Add Your Classes.
  2. Import your students to your account.
  3. Assign your students to classes.
  4. Either print out or email the login instructions to each student.
Semi-Manual Setup

This option allows your students to enroll in classes themselves, but also gives you full control over students' accounts once they are signed up. This option is for you if you have imported your student list, but do not want to bother with assigning each individual student to a class.

  1. Add Your Classes. Make sure each class is configured to allow students to join it. To enable this, go to "classes" and click on "edit class." Scroll down to "How should students join this class?" Select the "Any student in my account may join" option.
  2. Import your students to your account.
  3. Instruct your students to sign in and join their class by clicking the "More Activities" button on their home page, finding the appropriate class, and clicking "join."
  4. You can view what classes your students have joined, remove them from a class if they joined accidentally, or manually add students to other classes yourself.
Easy Setup

This is the most flexible option that will give your students the freedom to sign up by themselves and join their own classes. This option offers a very easy setup process while allowing you to still have full control over who can join your account and enroll in each class. This can be a great option in a library setting where you might want to allow students to sign up on their own and compete with classmates, while you track their progress.

  1. Configure your account to allow students to sign up themselves. Do this by going to the settings tab and clicking "Student Sign Up Option." Click "Activate the Student Sign Up Option."
  2. Add Your Classes. Make sure each class is configured to allow students to join it. To enable this, go to "classes" and click on "edit class." Scroll down to "How should students join this class?" Select the "Any student in my account may join" option.
  3. Instruct your students to sign in and join their class by clicking the "More Activities" button on their homepage, finding the appropriate class, and clicking "join."
  4. You can view what classes your students have joined, remove them from a class if they joined accidentally, or manually add them to other classes yourself.
