How do I create a shortcut icon on an iPad that links to the Student View?

You can create an icon on the Home screen of an iPad that links directly to the Student View so that students can easily access the games that you have assigned to them.

Step 1: Open Safari on your iPad or iPhone and go to the Student View using one of the methods described in the Student Devices tutorial.


Step 2: Tap the share button on your browser’s toolbar (it’s the rectangle with an arrow pointing up.) You will find this at the top of an iPad screen and at the bottom of an iPhone screen.
A menu will appear. Look for and tap on the Add to Home Screen icon. You may need to swipe the black and white icons to show more icons.


Step 3: Tap the Add button and the shortcut app icon will be added to your home screen. You can drag the icon around and place it anywhere, just like your other app icons.


If you want your icon to open directly to the Groups page or the Students page in the Student View, go to the page by clicking on the Groups panel or the Students panel. Then repeat steps 2 and 3 to create your shortcut.
