There are several different ways to create a new student account in the Discovery Education platform: through the Wonde integration; through the Classrooms dashboard if you are a class teacher; through the Admin Dashboard if you are a School Admin.
If your school has used the Wonde integration tool to import data from your school's management information system, new student accounts may be created automatically.
The continued integration means that any 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.
