PLEASE NOTE

If your district's SIS (Student Information System) syncs with Otus to roster students and classes, this feature will not be available.

Adding Students via Email

If a student already has an Otus account, you can add them to the class by entering their email address into the Class Info section of your class.

Step 1: While in the Classes module, select Class Info

Step 2: Enter the student's entire email address into the Add Students by Email field. *Make certain to press ENTER or RETURN on your keyboard after typing the entire student email and do not include a space after their email!*
 
Step 3: Click on the students email once it appears below the text bar, then click Add. Be sure to click SAVE at the bottom of the page.

Step 4:   If the student's email doesn't exist as an Otus account yet, the system will allow you to create their account by providing a first and last name, phone number, and password for the student.  Passwords must be at least 8 characters and require a capital letter, a lowercase letter, a number, and 2 special characters. Choose from the following characters: !"#$%&'()*+-/:;<=>?@{\}^_{|}~.

Adding Students Via Class Code

If a student already has an Otus account, they may join your class by entering a Class Code.  

Step 1: Locate the Class Code. You can find the Class Code in two locations.

The first location:

  • While in the Classes module, click on Class Info.
  • The Class Code is located in the field titled Class Code.

The second location:

  • While on your home screen, the Class Code can be found on your class tiles.

Step 2: Students should enter the class code after selecting Join Class.  The class code is case sensitive so students should enter the code exactly as it appears within the teacher account.

Adding (and Creating) Student Accounts Via CSV Upload

Step 2: Click Download Template to download a simple, 4-column template to enter student info into for account creation. 

Step 3: Once completed, upload the CSV file by clicking Choose File under the Add Students By Email Field, then click Upload.  Above is an example of 2 student accounts set up for creation.   Passwords must be at least 8 characters and require a capital letter, a lowercase letter, a number, and 2 special characters. Choose from the following characters: !"#$%&'()*+-/:;<=>?@{\}^_{|}~.

Step 4: Be sure to click Save at the bottom of Class Info to save all of the changes you've made, including your addition of students.
