Inviting Students to a Remote Class

A Remote Class in the Teacher app allows teachers to add or automatically create a meeting invite link from video conferencing software to the Teacher app, and then select the class or students they want to invite to the meeting. Students will receive a push notification that they can tap to join the meeting.

If your school enables this feature, you can use Remote Class to invite students to a video meeting.

This feature may not be supported on your Teacher app depending on the software your school uses to manage devices and the settings your school has configured.

Configuring Your Default Remote Class

  1. In the video conferencing software you want to use, copy the meeting invite link URL.

    This meeting invite link will be the default link.

  2. In the Teacher app, tap your profile icon to navigate to settings.
  3. Tap Configure and enter the meeting invite URL you copied from the video conferencing software in the Invite Link field, and then tap Save.
  4. Tap Done.
