When you create your SpacesEDU account, your first class will be created automatically. All that you need to do is invite your students!
By default, your class will be named "My First Class". To customize the class name and other class settings, simply click on the name of your class near the top left of the screen, and select Edit.
From here, you can customize your class name, avatar image, and optionally set the grade level(s) you're teaching. You can also enable or disable the Sample Student option.
How do I create additional classes?

1. In your teacher account, navigate to the top of the header, and click the home button, this will open up the classes panel.
