Group Management

A group consists of a set of student accounts, usually belonging to students in the same class. Each group is assigned one main teacher.

Additional teachers can be added to help manage the group as needed.

A teacher account can access and manage multiple groups. The super administrator or a school administrator can also manage groups.

Note — One or more of these management functions may be disabled for teacher accounts if permissions have been revoked by an administrator. In such cases, the function will appear grayed out in the interface, and the administrator responsible will be displayed when the cursor is held over it.

Adding a Group

Groups can be added in two ways:

  • Click the Groups tab, then click the Add a Group button, fill in all the required fields, assign the group to one or more existing teacher accounts or create a New teacher account to be automatically assigned to the group, then click Add.

    Note — Only super and school administrators can create new teacher accounts when adding a group, and only a single account can be created during this step. If no existing teachers are assigned to the group first, the newly created account will be automatically attributed to the group as the main teacher.

  • Import an Excel or CSV file to create teacher and student accounts; groups listed for each account in the upload file will be automatically created if they do not already exist in the system and assigned to the account in question.

Live Supervision

Supervise the activity of all the students in a group in real time from the dynamic dashboard in the Student Accounts panel on the Group Summary screen.

Each tile represents a different student account and indicates it status (Online or Offline) and the activity underway, if any.

Tiles are displayed for all student accounts by default. Click Online or Offline in the top right corner of the panel to filter them by status.
