PLEASE NOTE

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


There are three ways to add a student to your class:

See below for instructions on how to add students to your class using all three methods.


Adding Students via Email Address

This method is best for one you only have a few students to add.

  • Step 1: Navigate to the Classes module

  • Step 2: Select Class Info.

  • Step 3: Choose the class you wish to add a student to.

  • Step 4: 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.

  • Step 5: Click on the student's email once it appears below the text field.

  • Step 6: Click Add

  • Step 7: Click Save at the bottom of the page.

➡️ If the student doesn't have an Otus account:

  • The system will allow you to create their account by providing a first and last name, phone number, and password for the student.


Adding Students via CSV Upload

This method is best for adding many students at once.

  • Step 1: Navigate to the Classes module

  • Step 2: Select Class Info.

  • Step 3: Choose the class you wish to add a student to.

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

  • Below 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 1 special character.

  • Step 5: Once completed, upload the CSV file by clicking Choose File, then click Upload.  

  • Step 6: Click Save at the bottom of the page.


Adding Students Via Class Code

  • Step 1: Locate the Class Code. You can find the Class Code on the Class Info page of your Classes module.

  • Step 2: Students should go to the Classes module, click Join Class, and enter in the code. The class code is case sensitive so students should enter the code exactly as it appears within the teacher account.

Important Note: It may take up to 10 minutes for students to see the class tile appear on their classes page.
