Adding Students to your Groups

How to Add Students to your Groups


There are 2 methods that you can choose to add students to your group:       


Method 1 – Students create their own accounts and join your group using an ‘enrolment key’.

(The easy and quicker method)

Method 2 – You create student accounts for your group and send them their credentials to log in.

(The method with more control, but with the potential to be troublesome)


Method 1 – Students create their own accounts and join your group using an ‘enrolment key’.

Once you have purchased a number of seats, you will see these seats in your group management page. Each unused seat will have its own ‘enrollment key’.

To access these keys, click the ‘Download Keys’ button in the ‘Enrolled Users’ section the ‘Group Management’ page.

This will provide you with a list of all available keys.

Hand a key out to each of your students.

Now it is over to them to create the accounts!

Ask them to visit www.revisecomputerscience.com and click on ‘Student Sign Up’ in the top menu bar, followed by ‘Sign Up With Teacher’s Key’ (see below).

Your students will be given a form to fill out where they must provide their name, email address, password and their enrolment key.

Once submitted, their account will be created and they will be able to access the purchased course and therefor the learning resources.

As the students create their accounts, the accounts will become visible on the ‘Group Management’ page.

Method 2 – You create student accounts for your group and send them their credentials to log in.

***Please note, although this method provides you with more control over their usernames and email addresses, it will rely on your students being able to access emails from their email account. Furthermore, sometimes, emails from this website end up in junk email inboxes or blocked by school filters. Only use this method if you are certain the students will be able to access their emails and the school will not try to filter the emails from this website’s domain.***

Option 1 – Entering account details manually:

If you wish to manually enter the details of a student or set of students, click on the ‘Add User’ drop down, in the ‘Enrolled Users’ section of your ‘Group Management’ page.

Choose ‘One User’ if you wish to only add one student, and then complete the form, selecting ‘Add and invite user’ and filling out their first name, surname and email address.

Choose ‘Multiple Users’ if you wish to add several students and then complete the form, filling out the first name, surname and email address of each of your students.

Option 2 – Upload account details in bulk:

If you wish, you can instead enter your student’s details onto a csv file and upload them in one go. To do this click on the ‘Upload Users’ button in the ‘Enrolled Users’ section of your ‘Group Management’ page.

Download the ‘Sample .CSV File’ and populate it with each of your students’ email address, password, first name and surname.

Ensure you save it as a ‘.csv’ file.

Then select ‘Add and Invite Users’ and finally upload the CSV file and press ‘Add Users’.

Having completed either ‘Option 1’ or ‘Option 2’, the system will have now created an account for each of your students (which you can see in your ‘Group Management’ page)…

…and sent them each an email outlining their user credentials.

Using the information provided in their emails, your students should now be able to log into their account.

They should go straight to the ‘My Account’ page and change their password to something more memorable.

They should now be able to enter the purchased course and begin using the learning resources, with their progress and activity being tracked in the background.


Student previously bought their own subscription and now I want them to join my group…is this possible?

Yes, this is indeed very possible.

But it will require an ‘enrolment key’.

As they have already paid for their subscription I will happily manually add a seat on a case by case basis – just send me an email and explain who the student is and I will look to add a seat into your group.

So, this process is very simple indeed. Students need to log in and go to the ‘Member’s Zone’ menu option and then from the sub-menu, click on ‘Join Group’.

On the page that loads, they need to enter the ‘enrolment key’ that you have provided them with and after submitting the key, their account will be attached to your group.
