One of the cornerstones of Showbie: the Class

Classes are used to organized students or subjects that you teach. You can organize them based on subject, grade level, class period, or however you prefer!

How to Create a Class

  • Navigate to your class list and tap the Wrench Icon.

  • Tap on New Class.

  • Type the name of the class into the Name field.

  • Tap on Class Code to adjust the registration settings for your class.

  • Tap Save when you’re done.

Note that once a class is created, it will be listed in your Class List alphabetically. If you'd like to re-order your classes, we recommend inserting numbers or emojis at the beginning of the class name. Find out how to rename your existing classes here.

The order in which class names will appear in the list is Emojis > Numbers > Letters.

Registration Settings

Once you've created a class, you can share the class code with your students so they can join. Your class's registration settings can be set to open to join, join by approval, or closed.

When you first create a class it will default to be open to join. Then after 2 weeks, it will automatically change to join by approval. This helps keep your class secure.
