How to Create Classes on ESL Library Digital
If you are a teacher using ESL Library Digital, you will need to create classes and invite students to them. A class is required for assigning digital homework. Please follow the steps below or stay tuned for our related video.
Please note: If you have not sent invitations to your students yet, please see our help doc with instructions on how to complete this step.
Log in to your account here:
Once logged in to your account, head to the My Classes page by clicking your name (or the menu icon on smaller screens) in the top right corner of the page (see below).
After landing on the My Classes page, you will see all of your existing classes and a list of all active students below. If you have not created any classes yet, My First Class will be your only class. You can invite all your students into this class, or create a new class. Select the New Class box to create a new class.
Enter a name and optional description for your new class. Next, select a color for your class and then click the Save button. Please note that your class name and color are visible to your students.
After saving your new class, you will land inside the class page (e.g., Thursday PM). You now have the option to start inviting students to that class. If you do not have students yet, select the Invite new students with email or Invite new students with codes button.
If you already have active students, you will see the Add an existing student button.
If you are adding an existing student, select the checkbox next to their name and click Save to add them to your class.
These students will now appear in your class list and will be a part of this class.
Your new class will now be visible from the My Classes page (in alphabetical order).
You can click on the class to see the students in your class or make any adjustments (add/remove students, edit the class name/description/color, delete the class).
After clicking on a class, you can add students by selecting the Add Students button or selecting one of the three boxes for adding students to a class.
You can remove students by clicking the Remove box in the students’ row.
Edit the class name, description, or color by clicking the Edit box in the top right corner. You can also delete a class by clicking this button.
You will land on a new page where you can make adjustments to the class name, class description, or color. Click Save once you have made the changes. Or, there is an option to delete the class at the bottom.
Note: If you delete a class, you will still be able to add your students to a different class.
