How to Create Student Accounts (Teachers)

As a teacher, you need to know how to create student accounts. Note: This option is not available to Teachers if the Group Administrator has turned off the ability for teachers to create users. see Account Options Under Group Administrator Control.

If your group uses an automated rostering option to synchronise myON students and classes with your student information system, do not follow these steps to create student accounts. Instead, contact your administrator if you have any changes.

  1. On the dashboard, click Classroom, then Students.
  2. select Classroom,then Students

  3. On the right-hand side of the screen, click + next to Create Student.
  4. select Create Student

  5. In the popup window, enter the following required information:
    • ID
    • Important: This must match the ID in your student information system if your myON students are synchronised with that system. If the IDs do not match, you may accidentally create duplicate students. SIS IDs must be at least 3 characters long.

      If the ID or user name that you are trying to use is a duplicate, the student you are trying to add may already be on your site, and you may be able to simply assign the student to your class. If the student does not appear to be on your site, and you need help finding the user who is using the ID or user name, talk to your School or Group Administrator.

    • Username
    • Password
    • User names must be at least 3 characters long and must be unique on the site; passwords should also be at least 3 characters long.

    • First Name
    • Last Name
    • Year
    • School (if necessary)

    Tick the box(es) next to the group(s) that you want this student enrolled into. Click Save when you have finished.
