Creating Lessons

If permitted by your school's IT department, you can configure which apps, websites, and built-in apps students can use during lessons, such as Math or English. This ensures students can only access apps and websites that are related to the subject they are currently learning.

  2. Tap Create First Lesson.
  3. Enter a name and description for the lesson.

    Note:

    You can only select from apps that are installed on your device.

  6. (Optional) To add lesson resources, enter the URL of a website, such as a Dropbox document or Google Drive document, in the Lesson Links field.
    These lesson resources are available to students in the Student app when you start a lesson.
