How do I view & add Students?


You must be logged in as a Teacher or Community Admin to add Students.

Points to Remember.
  1. If you are integrated with Edmodo , you dont need to set up students. Students will be automatically added by Edmodo when you add them to your Edmodo class. 

  2. If you are integrated with Google Domains, you don't have to set up Students. Simply give Students a Class Access Key to join. See Class Access key below.
If your school or community is a stand-alone Literatu Community, you will need to add Students. There are some really quick ways to do this.

Method 1 - Via the setup wizard

From the Setup Wizard, click the 'Add Students' step. Click here for a refresher on the Setup Wizard.

Method 2 - Via manage students

To access the student management screen, click 'Manage' on the main menu, then 'Students' on the drop-down.

You will see a list of the students in your community.

The 'Actions' drop-down beside each student allows you to:

Adding students to classes with a Class Access Key

Students need only enter this key via their profile to join the class.

Students can enter a class key using this screen, and they will be automatically added to the class.

Teachers can also copy the text given in the Email link and paste that into an email to Students.
