If your students already have Boddle student accounts, do not create new accounts for them using the method described below. Instead, just add their existing account to your Boddle classroom using the Invite Students with a Link method or Adding Students with Class Code process.
Creating Student Accounts Using the Manual Entry Method
To create new student accounts and add these students to your classroom using the manual entry method, go to the teacher dashboard. Next, click on the class that you would like to add students to.
You can find the “Add students” button in two places.
The first place is at the Quick Links section at the top.
The second place is by finding the “Students” button on the left panel and then clicking the blue “Add Students” button at the top. Then, click on the blue “Create” button in the pop-up to manually create student accounts.
You can either manually enter the students’ names, usernames, and passwords or upload an Excel template with student information.
Creating Students by manual input
To manually create student accounts and add them to your classroom, first type their first names and last initials directly into the student manager. You then have the option to input their individual usernames and passwords or have them autogenerated.
Next, press the blue “Next Step” button at the bottom of the pop-up. On the confirmation page, ensure that all of the student information, including their individual grade levels, is correct. Once you have verified this, click the blue “Submit” button to add the students to the classroom.
Uploading Students Using Excel
To upload students’ accounts using Excel, first click the “Download Template” button at the top and open the Excel sheet. Next, fill out the Excel sheet with student account information. This requires each student’s first name, last initial, username, and password.
Then, click “Upload Excel” to put the information into the student manager and press the blue “Next Step” button at the bottom. On the confirmation page, ensure that all of the student information, including their individual grade levels, is correct. Once you have verified this, click the blue “Submit” button to create the student accounts and add the students to your classroom.
