Here at FSI Courses, we get the class rosters for your students and add the students into class groups for you.  For example, if you teach 2nd, 3rd, and 5th period physical science we will add your students into the specific class period groups.  This helps speed up the process, take weight off of your shoulders, and give the students access to courses with stored username and passwords for teachers to access. (No more, I forgot my password!).  You can also shoot us an email if you need anymore students added and we often respond in a timely manner.  But in the event you are pressed for time and would like to add a student on your own we have you covered as well.  Let’s go through the short process of adding students on your own. (Each class group has a maximum number of students you can add based upon the number of students on your class roster, so keep that in mind)  (CLICK HERE TO WATCH TUTORIAL VIDEO)
