Importing Class Rosters from ClassLink

Importing Class Rosters from ClassLink

Overview

LanSchool Air supports using ClassLink as a source for class rosters. With ClassLink integration, instructors will not need to manually create classes and manually add students to their class rosters. Instructors can still create their own classes manually, but classes synced to ClassLink from your district's SIS will appear automatically for them.

Adding Instructors

At this time, LanSchool Air does not support using ClassLink for authentication. Instructors must be added to LanSchool Air by a Site Admin using the email invitation process. See Managing Instructors and Site Admin Accounts for more information. Instructors can log into LanSchool Air using a password, the Sign in with Google button, or with Single Sign-On through Azure Active Directory.

  1. Using ClassLink as a source for class rosters will disable Google Classroom sync for instructors and Clever and CSV rostering.

  2. To add student devices to LanSchool Air, the client must be deployed and the devices must be provisioned. Refer to the LanSchool Air Setup Guide for more instructions.

  3. After successfully syncing ClassLink rosters with LanSchool Air, Site Administrators can confirm an instructor's rosters are correct by finding their account in Admin Settings > People and selecting Show Classes.

Prerequisites

  1. ClassLink must already be configured with your Student Information System (SIS). To get started, visit ClassLink | Identity & Access Management for Education.
  2. For Chromebook students, students must have their Google Workspace email address populated in ClassLink's email field.  (e.g. jsmith@school.org).
  3. For Windows and macOS student devices, students must have their local device login name populated in ClassLink's username field (e.g. jsmith).
These data field requirements (email and username) allow LanSchool Air to match the student in the roster to the device they are logged in to. If your data does not meet these requirements or if you have any questions, please contact the Customer Success Team.

Setup Data Sharing

A ClassLink Admin can add the LanSchool Air application to their portal. 
  1. Log into ClassLink.
  2. Go to ClassLink Roster Server.
  3. Click on Apps.
  4. Click on +Add.
  5. Search for LanSchool Air and click +Add.
  6. On the Applications page ensure LanSchool Air is Enabled.
  7. Confirm all necessary user data is being shared.
  8. Use Rule-Based Permissions to only share the schools or classes that are using LanSchool Air. 

Enabling ClassLink Sync

  1. Log into LanSchool Air as a Site Admin,
  2. Go to LanSchool Air Settings > Setup.
  3. Under Classroom Management, click Enable for ClassLink.



    Enabling ClassLink disables the ability for teachers to sync LanSchool Air with Google Classroom. Any classes that were imported from Google Classroom will be removed from LanSchool Air. They will not be removed from Google Classroom.

  4. Click Confirm on the pop-up message.



  5. If prompted, log in with your ClassLink Admin Credentials.
  6. You'll be taken back to LanSchool Air where your roster data will be confirmed.
  7. Verify that your roster data is correct then click Sync to sync the data.



  8. On the ClassLink Sync page select Done.



  9. Teachers with LanSchool Air accounts should now see their ClassLink classes under their My Classes page.
