Step 1- Add Classes
Import Student Data
The first step in setting up Relay Classroom is importing your users (teachers and students), your groups, and your memberships. Choosing the right user and group source is important in order to set up Relay Classroom in a manageable way. The Relay Platform has many sync options to choose from, here is a little advice on how to choose.
If you need some help setting up your SIS integration, take a look at our documentation on SIS integration basics.
Setting up your user and group information in Google Classroom is the simplest way to import your organization’s information. Take a look at our documentation on Google Classroom integration for more information.
Note: Classroom supports a maximum of 50 students per class.

Before going live, make sure that your devices are communicating with Relay Classroom:
