Register Students via List

Last updated by Rachel Cohen on March 31, 2017 16:44

This method should be used if:

1. Your students do not have school email addresses or logins

2. If your students are unable to register themselves

Navigate to the Students button at the top of the page. On the next page, you’ll see two tabs, Students, and Groups. Select the Groups tab. Here you’ll see one or more groups. Learn about creating new groups  here.

To the right of the group you’d like your students to join, click the gear icon. On the next group management page, you’ll see a charcoal button that says ‘Register Students.’ Click this button.

There are two options on this page, a text box and upload via CSV option. The list method is the text box on the left.

Enter the names of your students or their email addresses. If you enter names, we will generate login emails for them, if you enter emails, those will act as their logins. 

All names must be unique so you may need to use last initials or some other identifier if some students have the same name. Alternatively, you can also use student ID numbers or some other unique identifiers. After entering the names, click Register Students.

On the next page, you’ll see the login information for your students. VERY IMPORTANT: As a security measure this is the only time you will see the passwords for your students. Either print this page or take a screenshot so that you always have a record of this information. After you have saved the login information for your students, you can return to the user management page.

Your students will use the information in the login email and password columns to log in at www.thinglink.com/edu. They are automatically in your group. If you have Premium Education they will also get the same premium features you have purchased.
