When you first start using Bakpax, you will need to create your classroom(s). Here is some helpful information for how to create and manage your classroom(s).
To create a classroom, click the Classrooms tab in the navigation at the top of the page. Next, click the Create new classroom button.
You will then have to name your class and set the subject and grade.
After you have created your class, you will have to create an assignment and enroll your students.
Import Your Google Classroom and Enroll Students
You can import your Google Classroom and invite your class roster to Bakpax.
First, create a classroom in Bakpax by navigating to the Classrooms page and clicking Create a new classroom button.
Then, click Import Google Classroom. You will be prompted to sign in to your Google account and select your class.
Select your desired Google Classroom, the subject, and grade level, and then click Import.
Now, your students will be invited to your Bakpax classroom.
If students already have a Bakpax account, they will automatically be enrolled in your classroom. If students do not have a Bakpax account, they will be invited by email to create one. Once they’ve created an account from the link, they will instantly be enrolled in your class.
Students Joining a Classroom
Once the Bakpax classroom is set up, students will need to join it. To enable the class code, click on the pencil icon in the upper right corner of the page to edit the class settings.
You can then use the toggle to enable the class code.
When the class code is enabled, it can always be seen at the top of the page.
| Disabled Class Code:
| Enabled Class Code:
Give this code to your students. When they create an account, they will need the class code to join your classroom.
Once students have joined your class, they will be listed in the classroom.
Students can also join multiple classrooms if they are in multiple Bakpax classes with one teacher or if they have multiple teachers who use Bakpax. To begin, they will need to select Classrooms from the drop down menu.
When they open the Classrooms page, they will see a list of the class(es) they have joined. They can also use the Join Classroom button to join additional class(es.)
After the student has clicked on Join Classroom they will need the class enrollment code to join a Bakpax class.
To add a student to a class, teachers will have to create a username-password account for the student. They can do this by opening the classroom and selecting the Add Students button.
Next, the teacher must select the Add Manually enrollment option.
This option will allow the teacher to create a username and password for each student.
Managing Student Accounts in Your Classroom
As a teacher, you can...
If a student signed up for Bakpax independently, or has added an alternative login method to their account, you will not have the ability to edit their student account information.
Removing Students from Your Class
To remove a student from your class, hover over their name and then click on the "x" icon.
You will then be asked to confirm that you would like to remove the student from your class.
Updating Username-Password Student Accounts
You can change the following for any username-password student account.
- Student Name
To update any of the information listed above, you must open their classroom and click on the student name.
This will allow you to edit their student information and/or login information.
You can delete a Bakpax classroom and all of the information it contains. Please be completely sure about deleting a classroom before doing so, as restoring a classroom is a time consuming process.
To delete a classroom, open it and select the pencil icon.
You can then use the Delete button to delete your classroom.
If you accidentally delete a class and would like it to be restored, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Classroom Name
- Email linked to Bakpax account
Please also note that it may take a bit of time for the class to be restored.
You can have unlimited classrooms in Bakpax. We suggest that you use different classrooms for groups of students in different subjects or at various learning levels if applicable. This is because you assign handouts by classroom.
