Students create their own accounts

Click the Copy button to copy the unique link and share it via email, add it to your learning management system, or write it on your whiteboard. When students click this link, they will be prompted to sign up for their own Quill account and will be automatically added to this class.

Create accounts for students

Alternatively, you can choose the Create accounts for students option if you would like to add students by adding their first names and last names and have Quill generate a unique username and password combination for each student.

When you select this option, add each student's first name and last name and click the Add button. When you click the Add button, Quill will generate a unique username that defaults to the pattern of the student's first name, a period, the student's last name, the @ symbol, and the class code of the class with the two words separated by a dash and a password that defaults to the student's last name with the first letter capitalized.
