How to Create Classes on ESL Library Digital
If you are a teacher using ESL Library Digital, you will need to create classes and assign students to them. A class is required for starting a session or assigning homework on the digital platform. Please follow the steps below or watch our related video to learn how to set up a class.
Please note: If you have not sent invitations to your students yet, please see our help doc and related video with instructions on how to complete this step.
Log in to your account here:
Once logged in to your account, head to the Manage Students 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 Manage Students page, you will see three tabs: My Classes, My Students, and Invite. In the My Classes tab, you will see a list of any existing classes. Click the New Class button 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.
After saving your class, you will land on a new class page (e.g., Friday Afternoon). You now have the option to start adding students to that class. Select the Add Students button to move students into your class.
A list of all the students in your account will appear for you to select and add to your class. Click the box next to the students' names you want to have in that class. Then click the Save button.
Please note: Pending students who have not yet accepted their invitation or set up their account can also be added to your class. Once they set up their account, they will automatically join that class.
You will now see the list of selected students under the class you created. Click My Classes to go back to your list of classes and see your new class.
Your new class is now visible under My Classes (in alphabetical order). You can click on the class to see the list of students or make any adjustments (add/remove students or edit the class name/description/color).
Note: A class can also be deleted on the My Classes page by clicking the trash can icon in the row for that class.
After clicking on a class, you can add or remove students by clicking the Edit Students button.
Your list of students will appear. Add a new student by clicking the box next to the student's name (e.g., Taylor G). Remove a student by unchecking the box next to the student's name (e.g., Bob Dylan). Click Save when complete.
Edit the class name, description, or color by clicking the Edit box in the top right corner.
You will land on a new page where you can make adjustments to the class name, description, or color. Click Save once you have made the changes.
