There are various different ways to organise the classes within the school and to allocate or move students within classes.
If your school has used the Wonde integration tool to import data from your school's management information system, the classes and assigned teachers may already be organised.
The continued integration also means that any mid-term alterations will be picked up by the daily Wonde update, and minimal input will be required.
However, some schools who use the Wonde integration for creating accounts still choose to manually create and populate their classrooms.
Creating a New Class
As a class teacher, you will be able to create a new class by clicking on Classrooms from the main Discovery Education menu on the left-hand side of the screen.
Select Classrooms from the following menu.
To create a new class, choose Create Class in the top right-hand corner of the screen
Add a name and description for your new class and click on Save
There are two options for adding students to this new class.
Firstly, if your student accounts are not automatically created using our Wonde integration, the Create Student option will allow you to manually create a new student account.
All fields with asterisks will need to be filled in.
If your school's management information system is paired with Discovery Education through the Wonde app, you will be able to select the student accounts that should be added to the new class, by clicking on Add student from roster
Clicking on Add at the end of the student's row will move that student into the new class. Please note that if they have already been enrolled in anothr class, adding them to the new class will move the account away from the previous class.
Editing a Class
(Please note that if your school uses Wonde, any alterations to class structure, student accounts or assigned teachers, may be updated automatically - if you are in any doubt, please check with the School Admin)
To edit a class manually, use the Global Nav menu on the left-hand side of the screen to select Classrooms and then choose Classrooms.
By clicking on the ellipsis icon next to the appropriate class, a drop-down menu will be shown.
Select Manage this class
The General card will show the class name, description and list any teachers assigned to this class.
If you would like to alter the name, description or even then avatar and theme for this class, you can do so here.
The Pupils card lists any students already allocated to this class. By clicking on the ellipsis icon at the end of the row, a drop-down menu will offer different options to manage that student's account.
You can Remove from Classroom using this menu. This will remove that account from the specified class but that student account will still be present in the school's Discovery Education roster.
To add an existing student's account to the class, choose the Add Student from roster in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
To manually add a new student to the class, choose Create Student.
If you need to adjust the teachers assigned to this class, you can do this in the Teachers card.
Use Add or Remove buttons next to the teacher accounts to make the desired changes.
Students with existing accounts can also be added to the class through the School Roster card, which will list the Discovery Education accounts of all students in the school.
Use Add or Remove buttons next to the student accounts to edit the class roster.
Download Class Roster in the top right-hand corner of the screen, will create an Excel document with the class' student details including their Usernames. Please note, this will not display the student passwords.
Managing classrooms in Admin Dashboard

If you are a School Admin, you can also add extra classes and edit existing classes through the Admin Dashboard.

Adding students to that class can be completed using the same process as listed above.
