myClassroom-District

 Requirements for myClassroom-District

  • The School or District must have Schoology as their LMS
  • The number of licenses must exceed the 200 count in the total.
  • The school must have an IT or a teacher with intermediate computer knowledge to do the configuration.
  • IT must provide the Spanish courses' roster by using .csv (comma separated value) format or OneRoster v1.0 or v1.1 (for more information about OneRoster, click here).
  • The information in each one of the files must be between double quotes:

If your SIS (Student Information System) cannot export the information between double quotes or you do not know how to do it, do not worry. Just ask Santillana USA's Tech Support and they will take care of it.

Let's start!

1. Contact our Tech Support team in order to obtain access to one of our SFTP server's location, login credentials for myClassroom, and determine what type of integration the school is going to implement (CSV or OneRoster).

2. Access our SFTP location by using an FTP/SFTP client (WinSCP, FileZilla) where you will find empty templates (if requested) based on the integration the school is going to use.

3. Visit https://myclassroom.santillanausa.com/login and enter your email and password

4. Choosing the files and Mapping

Users
-
Select the file corresponding to Users.


- After retrieving the file USERS.csv from the SFTP server's location, it is required to do the mapping, matching the headers or columns of the file with the ones required from myClassroom; e.g. First Name (from the file) with the First Name from myClassroom.

 

- Input the values from your import file that represent each role

- Select the best options based on your needs.

- And click on "Save User Settings"

 

Courses
- Select the file corresponding to courses.

- After the file has been retrieved, it is required to do the mapping, matching the headers or columns of the file with the ones required from myClassroom.

- Input the values that represent the grading period from the .csv file. Make sure the grading period has been created previously on Schoology. If you need to create/remove grading periods, please contact Tech Support via chat or email.

What are Course Name and Section Name?
Each course has a Course Name and a Section Name. This naming convention allows you to create multiple sections for the same course. For example:

Course Name: English 101

  • Section Name: Section 1
  • Section Name: Section 2

If your school uses class periods, you may also use a course/section structure like the following example:

Course Name: English 101

  • Section Name: Period 1
  • Section Name: Period 2

What are Course Code and Section Code?
They are unique IDs that are used to differentiate them when the courses/sections are created. These IDs must be alphanumerical and they must not contain any special characters. Example:
Course Code: yyFirst3LettersOfTheCoursemmdd000 (18ESP0429000)
Section Code: yyFirst3LettersOfTheCourseAndTheLevelNumbermmdd000 (18ESPHS10429000)

 

- Match the course template with the equivalent of the course code from .csv file and input the value. The shown templates will be based on the licenses the school has bought.

- Click on "Save Course Settings".

 

Enrollment
- Select the file corresponding to Course Enrollment.

- After the file has been retrieved, it is required to do the mapping, matching the headers or columns of the file with the ones required from myClassroom.
Note: Use Section School Code if the integration is being configured for multiple schools (managing different schools under one district). Also, do not forget to differentiate in the file the users between as "Students" or Teachers".

- Select the best option based on your needs.

Schools or Buildings (Optional)
This section is only filled if the integration is being configured for multiple schools (managing different schools under one district). This will differentiate course creation and enrollment.

- Select the file corresponding to Course Enrollment.

- After the file has been retrieved, it is required to do the mapping, matching the headers or columns of the file with the ones required from myClassroom.

- Click on "Save schools settings"

 

After the selection and mapping of the files corresponding to "Users", "Courses", "Enrollment", and "Schools or Buildings" (optional), the configuration has been completed. Remember all the changes are taken and processed at the frequency-time provided previously by Techincal Support (24 hour period).
