How do I create a shortcut icon on a Mac desktop that links to the Student View?

If you would like to create an icon on the desktop of a Mac computer that links directly to the Student View, please follow the steps below:

Step 1: Open Safari on a Mac computer and go to the Student View using one of the methods described in the Student Devices tutorial. This will take you to the webpage that your students will use at both school and at home to play their games.


Step 2: Select the entire address in the address bar at the top of the browser.


Step 3: Click and drag the address onto the Mac desktop and release the mouse button. A shortcut icon pointing to the game webpage will be created on the desktop. Your students can double click on the icon to easily get to their games.


If you want to link 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.
