Q: How do I manually add a class under the Classes Tab?

To manuallyAdd a Class, log in with your Admin account and go to theClasses Tab.Click onAdd Class.
Select Standard Rosteror Role Based Roster.
A class with a Role Based Roster can only be created on the domain level. Unlike a Standard Roster, the roster in this type of class is manage by rules - for example, you can include all teachers in a specific Organization, or all students in a grade level. For more information, please see ourKnowledgebase article on Role-Based Rosters.
Creating a class with a Standard Roster is very similar tohow teachers create a new class from their My Classes page. However, when you create a class under the Classes Tab, you can also set anImport IDfor the class (if you want to manage the class by import) and assign someone other than yourself as theClass Teacher.
