Things always come in threes 

You can also add pupils by clicking on “Add a new user” and then on “Import my pupils from CSV file” on the drop-down menu.

CSV 10

 

A CSV file is a data list you need to enter on a spreadsheet (like Excel or OpenOffice Calc.) in order to create accounts for all of your pupils. Beneylu School accepts Simplified format.

Select Simplified format before uploading your file.

Little tip : You will find a Simplified format example at the very bottom of the import page, as well as one “Simplified format” template to be downloaded and completed. Feel free to use them both!

CSV 12

Upload your file to create accounts for your pupils. That’s all there is to it!

The creation of a pupil account automatically generates a parent account.

2- Generate usernames and passwords for your pupils and their parents

Now it’s time to create usernames and passwords to your pupils (and their parents) for them to hook up to their Beneylu School classroom. To do so, go back to “My classroom” and click on “Create login credentials” at the top of the page.

Accept to generate the form. You are about to upload a PDF file in which you will find usernames and passwords for each of your pupils and their parents. The last thing you need to do is to hand out their login credentials for them to connect to the classroom.

You can generate :

  • Credentials for your pupils
  • Credentials  for parents
  • Credentials  for both pupils and parents
  • Customised credentials for a selection of pupils and/or parents of your choice.

Definitely made to measure.

Don’t forget to write down your new password to not forget it.

You can also change passwords of all users (pupils and parents) at every moment. It is always the same process :

To change a password on Beneylu School, you need to generate a PDF file.

Passwords generated for pupils or parents are random. Only the teacher one can be customised.

Then you can :

Generate a password for your teacher account.

Generate a password for a pupil / a parent if the latter has lost it. To do so, click on one of your pupil’s form. Then, click on “Create a new password” and select “For the pupil” or his/her parent :

password pupil

Generate passwords for the whole class :

wholeclass

Be careful, when you generate a form for the whole class and decide to generate a new one for a single pupil, only the last generated password will be working. The previous one will be unusable.

Is it possible for parents and pupils to customise their password ?

 

Passwords are randomly generated and cannot be customised. This allows us to insure the most reliable security within Beneylu School and prevent hacking attempts. Only the teacher password can be customised thanks to the Password Wheel.
