If you don't see your school name, you can add it by clicking on "Don't see your school? Add your school."

Dont see school

Enter your school name, city, state, and country - then click "Create Class." Please note: You can't edit school information once the class has been created, so make sure to check for spelling!


Once you have created a class, your school choices will be saved for when you next create one.

Add study sets

Add sets that are relevant to the class. You can do this from the class page by clicking on "Add a Set" on the upper right.

Privacy settings

If you want your sets to be visible to members of your class only, select "Visible to: certain classes" as their privacy setting. You can do this when creating a set or editing it.


Please note: Your students must be members of your class to view content with this permission. If a student cannot see your set, make sure that they have been successfully added to the class.

And you're done!
