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 tasks (digital homework).
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, click on Class Prep and then select My Classes from the drop-down menu.
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 Create New Class button to create a new class.
Enter a name along with the level(s), age(s) and skill(s) for your new class. Please note that only your class name is visible to your students.
After saving your new class, you will land inside the class page (e.g., Best Class Ever). Click on Add Students to start inviting students to that class.
If your student is creating a brand-new account, select the Invite new students with email or Invite new students with codes button. If you already have active students, choose 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 show as having joined the class in your class' activity feed. You can also click on the Students tab to see the student list for this class.
Clicking the Recommendations tab will show suggested lessons based on the level and age attributes selected for this class. To change the recommendations, click on Edit Class.
Your new class will now be visible from the My Classes page (in alphabetical order).
Note: You can click on the class to see the students in your class, view student participation, export results or make any adjustments (add/remove students, edit the class name/description/level/age/skill/colour/banner, or delete the class).
After clicking on the class, you can add students by selecting the Add Students button.
You can remove students by selecting the Students tab, clicking the More Options menu (...) by the student's name and selecting Remove from Class.
Edit the class name, description, level, age, skill, colour or banner by clicking the Edit Class button 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, description, level, age, skill colour or banner. Click Save once you have made the changes. Or, there is also 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.
