Importing KeyWords RP Students into NEO Manager and Adding Those Students to NEO 2s

Once your KeyWords RP students have been added and your KeyWords classes have been set up in Renaissance Place, you can import these KeyWords students into NEO Manager. This makes it easy to add the same students to NEO 2s to ensure that you have the same students on NEO 2s that you have in KeyWords RP.

Follow these steps to import the students from Renaissance Place into NEO Manager:

  1. Start NEO Manager on your computer.
  2. Click the KeyWords tab.
  3. Click Add on that tab.
  4. In the wizard that opens, click the Import from Renaissance Place option. Then, click Next >.
  5. Enter your Renaissance Place web address. Then, enter the user name and password that you use to log in to Renaissance Place in your web browser. Click Next >.
  6. If there is more than one school in Renaissance Place, click your school; then, click Next >.
  7. Tick the boxes for the classes that you want to import students from; then, click Next >.
  8. All students are ticked by default. Remove the tick mark for students that you do not want to import. Then, click Next >.
  9. Read the summary; then, click Import to import the students.
  10. Click Done after the students have been imported.

Once you have imported the students into NEO Manager, follow these steps to add them on NEO 2s. NEO 2s must be running KeyWords Wireless in the default online mode for you to perform these steps, and you must have a Renaissance Receiver connected to the computer that has NEO Manager installed.

  1. Press on/off on the NEO 2 to start it.
  2. Press applets.
  3. Use the down arrow to move the cursor next to KeyWords Wireless; then, press enter.
  4. Press the down arrow to highlight Add a student.
  5. You may be shown a list of Networks that are available. (Networks are Renaissance Receivers connected to computers.) Use the up and down arrow keys to highlight the Network that you want to connect to; then, press enter.
  6. If you have chosen a Network before, the program may ask if you want to stay connected. Press Y for yes or N for no; then, press enter. If you choose "no", you will see a list of Networks and will be asked to choose a different one.

  7. Type the student's user name and press enter. Then, type the student's password and press enter.
  8. You will see a "Checking Settings" message, then "Adding new pupil". Then, you will return to the KeyWords menu, and the student who was added will be listed under "Add a pupil".
