Add Students to Classes

Updated October 15, 2017

You can add students to classes in Total Motivation using 3 different methods. Students can join a class when they self-register, students can join a class any time from their Dashboard, or teachers can add students to classes in the Class Management area of a Teacher or Administrator account. Choose the method that works best for your students and follow the step-by-step instructions below.

Students Join During Self-Registration

Use this method for a new user who has not yet registered for their account and will self-register. When the student self-registers, the class sign-up code provided by their teacher will automatically enroll them in that class. See detailed instructions for student self-registration.

Students Join from the Home Page

Use this method for a student who is already a registered user. A student can join classes with the direction of the teacher following these steps.

  1. Log in to your Student account
  2. Click Classes from the Dashboard
  3. Enter the class sign-up code provided by your teacher (Educators, learn where to locate the class sign-up code in the Class Management area of a Teacher or Administrator account)
  4. Click Join Class

Teachers Add Students

If teachers need to add multiple students to a class at once, adding students in the Class Management area of a Teacher or Administrator account is the most convenient method.

Prerequisite: Import users or have students self-register.

  1. Log in to your Teacher or Administrator account.
  2. Navigate to the Class Management area.
