A teacher’s guide to the Classroom app for iPad
Introducing Classroom 2.0
Classroom is a powerful iPad app that helps you guide learning, share work, and
manage student devices. It supports both shared and one-to-one environments. You can launch a specific app, website, or textbook page on any device in the class,
share documents between teacher and students, or share student work on a TV,
monitor, or projector using Apple TV. You can even see which apps students are
working in, mute student devices, assign a specific Shared iPad for each student, and reset a student’s password.
This guide will take you through an overview of Classroom. You’ll learn how to get started using the app, and discover creative ways to integrate it into daily
classroom workflows.
Before you get started
Classroom is available in the App Store and is easy to set up. You can create classes
manually without IT support, or work with your school’s MDM administrator to
automatically configure Classroom with roster data for students and classes.

Create your class.
With Classroom 2.0, you can now set up your own classes manually, if your school isn’t configuring iPad for classroom use with MDM.
After you have downloaded the app to your iPad,
begin by launching Classroom.
Next, enter your name and add a photo that
students will see when they join your class, share
files with you, and when you are assisting them.
It’s easy to rearrange classes, switch from one class
to the next, and set up additional classes.
Select Create New Class, then name your class and
choose a color to represent it.
Alternatively, classes can be set up by your school’s
MDM (see page 6 for more info).

Invite your students.
Invite students to join your class so everyone can get started right away.
If you have manually created your class, you can
now invite your students to join. Select Add and
give the invitation code to your students.
Note that Classroom features require proximity
to your students.
Getting Started with Classroom 2.0 | A teacher’s guide to the Classroom app for iPad | March 2017
As students join your class, you will see their names and photos appear. Tap Add to add them to your class.
Once inside the class, you’ll see a list of your
students as well as the Actions list, which contains actions that you can perform on devices in the classroom.

Have students join a class.
When joining your class, students decide how you can manage and access their iPad — instruct them to use the settings that are most appropriate in your
environment.

Once you have sent your class invitation, settings
for Classroom will appear in the Settings app on
each student’s iPad. Ask your students to tap the
link for your new class invitation.
Students can tap My Information to edit their name
and photo, and then add the class by entering the
code you provided.
Student View
Students will join your class automatically every time they return to your classroom. At the end
of the course or school year, they can remove
the class.
Students can come back to these settings at any
time to change how the Classroom app can
control their iPad.

5
Work with classes created by your MDM.
If your school is using mobile device management (MDM) to manage devices, your school’s IT department can fully set up and configure your iPad with roster
data for classes and students. This reduces setup time in class, so you can get started right away. It can also support the school’s policies for mobile device
use with appropriate settings and restrictions.
All your classes will be fully set up, with students
enrolled and ready to go.
Settings for students enrolled in your class using
MDM are managed by your school’s IT department.
Note that the ability to create your own classes is
only available when you’re not using MDM.
This ensures that student devices are always
enrolled in your class and configured with your
school’s settings and policies.

Organize your class.
Classroom lets you create custom groups within your class, so you can tailor guidance for a single student, a group of students, or the entire class. You can
break the class into groups based on project assignment, and guide each group’s experience differently.
Select the students to be placed in a group, then
tap Group in the Actions list.
Getting Started with Classroom 2.0 | A teacher’s guide to the Classroom app for iPad | March 2017
Name the group based on project, skill level, or other categories as appropriate.
The group is now visible in the group list.
Classroom also creates dynamic groups of students
based on which app each student is using.
7
Launch and lock apps.
Launch a specific app on each student’s iPad at the same time. You can also lock iPad into a single app, so students stay focused on the subject or test at hand.
Tap Open to view the list of available apps, then
select the app that you would like to open.
Note that you and your students must both have
the app installed for this to work.

of options.

Classroom app returns to My Classes and you can
no longer access student devices.

Assign students to shared iPad devices.
When Classroom is configured with MDM for use with Shared iPad, you can assign specific students to each iPad. Classroom determines whether a particular
iPad has been assigned to a student before, and assigns the student to the same device. This enhances the student’s experience by reducing the amount of
data that needs to be downloaded.
Student View
Tap Assign and select from the available devices.
Getting Started with Classroom 2.0 | A teacher’s guide to the Classroom app for iPad | March 2017
The selected devices have now been assigned.
On each device, the assigned student will see
their photo ID or initials, which makes it easy for
students to find their device and log in.
17
Log out of shared devices.
When class ends, you can log out students—a single student, a group of students, or your entire class. When students are logged out, any documents
they were working on are synced to the cloud and are available the next time they log in.
Student View
Select a student, a group of students, or your
entire class, then tap Log Out.
Getting Started with Classroom 2.0 | A teacher’s guide to the Classroom app for iPad | March 2017
