You can share a link with your students using any method (email, social networks, SMS, etc.) Select Automatic Join Link, copy the link and paste it into the message you're sending to your students. You can also write it on the whiteboard in the classroom. If students visit this link, they'll be able to sign up for a Quizlet account if they don't already have one, and will be added to your class automatically.

Finding your class on Quizlet

Other users can find your class by typing the Class title into the search bar, then selecting the Classes tab when the search results are displayed. Tip: Give your class a unique name to make it easy to find. For example, a class named Mr. Brown's Algebra - Bairdmore School will be easier to find than a class named Algebra.
