Add Students or Devices to the Class Roster

When you add a student Chromebook to a class, you are adding the user. When you add a student Windows or Mac device to a class, you are adding the device. 
  1. Select Students to add the student(s) to a class.


  2. Click on Add Student Devices to open the list of all student devices currently registered to your LanSchool Air organization.

    • Search for a student using part of their name or their device name.
    • Select students individually by selecting the check box next to each student's name.


    • Instructors can add up to 100 students to a single class.

  3. Select Finish Adding

What if my student is not registered in LanSchool Air?

Student devices are added to the Registered List after the LanSchool Air agent has been installed on their device. For Chromebook students, this means they will need to login to their device before being registered for the first time. For more information on installing the agent on student devices see these articles for Chromebook, Windows, and Mac.

Why do student names sometimes change after adding them to my class?

When creating custom classes, Windows and Mac student devices are added to the roster as devices. This means that the student name associated with the device will change when a new student logs in. To create a class roster in LanSchool Air that follows the user instead of the device, the roster must be imported them from Clever or OneRoster CSV
