Start on the class you want to add students to
First, you will need to have created a class. If you don't know how to do that, read this article.
Enter the class you want to edit by clicking on it from your Manage Classes tab.
Import from Google Classroom
When you are viewing a class, it will show you the three options for adding students to a class. Select "Google Import," as in the screenshot below.
Click the "Import" button.
The first time you import from Google Classroom, you’ll have to grant Tyto Online access to your data on Google Classroom. After clicking “Authorize Access,” you’ll be prompted to authorize access. Immersed Games does not have access to your Google username or password, as this is processed only through Google.
Once you have Authorized Access to Import students, a pop-up will show you a list of all your Google Courses. Choose the one you wish to import students from by selecting "Import Students." The students from that Google Classroom will be immediately added to the Tyto Online Class you are editing.
Please keep in mind that it is importing to the class you are on, so if you want to import Google classes into separate Tyto Online classes, you will need to make a new class and import students into that one for each class.
Generates Accounts + Backup Passwords
When students are imported, they will have Tyto Online accounts created under their organization emails imported from Google. Backup passwords for these accounts will be automatically generated and emailed to them.
The Teacher Dashboard will show you these passwords once after you import from Google, and also email copies of the login information with instructions to your students. Please note that some school domains will not allow students to receive email from outside domains like ours, so if you want access to these backup passwords, you will want to save them.
Students Logging In
On the new browser version of the game, students can just use "Sign in with Google" to authenticate to log in on the Dashboard, and then go right into the game.
Instructions Below for our Older Versions of the Game
If students need to use an installed version or the old browser version:
If your students need to use one of our other versions, such as the Windows install or old browser version, due to tech limitations, they will need to use the backup password we sent them. In that case, they will use their school email and the password they were given on the login form in the game:
Since your students have email addresses associated with their accounts, they will be able to reset their own passwords if they forget them or are having trouble typing the auto-generated one. They will do this by selecting "unable to login?" on any login screen and following the instructions to reset their passwords.

Please note that if your district does not allow students to receive email from outside domains like ours, you will need to reset their passwords yourself if they need them and you do not have them (this is covered in the above article).
