Add students as users using My Class

Print Friendly

Once you’ve set up My Class you can add students as users to your class blog.

You add students as users to the class blog if you only want students to publish posts on the class blog and don’t want to your students to have their own individual student blogs.

Students are automatically added as users to a class blog when their student blog joins the class blog.

You use this option if your students don’t have an existing Edublogs username.

1.  Go to My Class  > Add Student Users
