Add students by CSV: If you have a spreadsheet of your students you may be able to import them by using a CSV file. The CSV may have the students email, name or Further username.
Add students by email: You can add a student by their email manually. If the student does not already have an account on Further then we'll create one for them and send an email with instructions for how to access their account.
Add students by username: You can add a student by their username manually also. In this case the student must already have an account on Further, we are not able to generate an account using a username.
Add students by name: This is the best option if you want anonymous accounts for your students. We will generate accounts based on the name you give us, you can manage the passwords for these accounts yourself.
