In Classroom you have the ability to create adhoc classrooms that includes a:
Class Calendar – ties into your current 365 calendar
Class Files – specific to the class with view only for students
Currently with PowerSchool integration, classes are automatically created and based on your teaching schedule. Students are added automatically to the classes and are updated as enrollment changes. Classes start off as inactive, meaning teachers are able to modify and setup their classroom, however, it will not be live to students until you activate the classroom.
Once you activate the classroom, the class will move up to the active classes and students will see the class in their interface.
TASK: create an adhoc classroom
NOTE: When creating a classroom you will need to make the name of the class very specific as there is only one name allowed per domain (ECSD). Name your class your first name, last name.
NOTE: Certain features will be readily available, others such as OneNote Class Notebook, Calendar, Conversations will are being built and will be available shortly. Refresh the page to
Select a class for specific details
Once you select a class, you have more options, specific to that class: Assignments, Calendar, Conversations, Class Notebook, Files and the ability to Manage the class
You also have an Announcement section where you can post messages to the class. You can also select multiple classes to post the same message to through the drop down. Links can also be added to the announcements by selecting insert link.
In the top right corner, you can see how many teachers and students you have registered in the class. For adhoc classes you will manually need to add students. For pre-created classes through our PowerSchool sync, teachers and students will automatically be added to the class and will display.
Before students can see your class, you will need to activate the class, select Manage from the top navigation.
Here you can mute students from conversations if necessary, add or remove students from your class or using the manage dropdown, mute all or update assignments and notebooks for the whole class.
Here you can modify certain elements of your class:
Class Name: For an adhoc class, this will be the name that you give your class. For pre-created classes, this will be populate with the course name from PowerSchool. Since one teacher can have multiple courses with the same name, you can change the name displayed for easier management of your classes. i.e. Physics 20 Block 1
You can give specific details for the class, chose a class color and icon as well as an image for the top border of your class.
To allow your students to interact with the class, select Activate Class in the top right corner.

The video will be embedded within the assignment details page for quick assess and viewing. If you are attaching Office files (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) you have the option of making a copy for each student. What this will do is replicate the attached file and rename a copy for each student. This will give them editing control over that document, not the original, that they can then submit back to the assignment.
Next, choose which class or classes you would like to assign the content to. You can assign to more than one class
Because of the integration with conversations, you have the option of turning on assignment conversations. This chat is specific to the assignment where students can collaborate and discuss the assignment within Classroom.

Once you have reviewed the final work, give the students a grade. You can chose to post instantly where the students will see the grade in real time, or chose to wait until all of the students’ assignments have been graded and then post the grades in bulk. You can adjust the grade weight of the assignment for each assignment, by default it is set to 100. There is also the option to export the grades to Excel which can then be uploaded into other LMS systems.
Icons indicate the status of assignments for each student. In progress, submitted for when assignments have been turned in, returned for when the teacher has sent the assignment back to the student and then graded for when a mark has been given and posted. Assignments can be sorted by these statuses when going through assignments.
