Preventing Teachers from Adding New Student Devices

Preventing Teachers from Adding New Student Devices

Overview

By default, instructors are able to add new student devices to their class and organization using a uniquely generated URL. See Installing LanSchool Air Windows Student or Installing LanSchool Air for Mac Student for details on how to use this feature.

Some organizations may decide to prevent teachers from adding new student devices to their LanSchool Air organization. Preventing teachers from adding new student devices can help maintain control of the LanSchool Air license and helps control what devices are added to the organization's student roster. 

Site Admin users can enable a setting that will disable the add new student device feature for the entire organization.

Disabling Add New Student Devices for the Organization

  1. A Site Admin will need to log into LanSchool Air.
  2. Click on the menu at the top left and go to LanSchool Air Settings.



  3. Select General.



  4. Select Prevent teachers from adding new student devices to LanSchool Air.



  5. When teachers or site admins go to Add New Student they will not be able to click on the Get Access Link and will see 'This option is disabled for your organization'.
