CloudApps Classroom allows you and your students to access the applications your classes require on any device—with no need to install any of the apps directly on the devices!
Your students can work in apps from the Adobe Suite, Autodesk, Microsoft Office, and more simply by logging in to the CAC Student Portal and selecting the application they need. Then, they can easily save their work to Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, or Adobe Creative Cloud, so nothing is lost and they can pick it right back up in the next class session.
Your District Administrator will set up your School and your first Classes, including syncing your class rosters right into CloudApps Classroom (though you can always add or remove students manually, too!), so all you’ll need to do is log in and launch your class!
In this article, we’ll review the basic steps to get started:
Step 1: Log in
1. Head to labs-admin.itopia.com
2. Log in with your school’s preferred identity provider (Google, Microsoft, or ClassLink)
Step 2: Review your Dashboard
Once logged in, you’ll be dropped into your CloudApps Classroom Dashboard.
Click the School tab in the side menu and verify that your school’s name is at the top of the page.
Click the Classes tab to see the classes you’re assigned to. You can click into any class to see information on which applications that class has included, any scheduled class sessions, the class roster, and more.
Step 3: Start a Class with your students
When it’s time for class, your students will log into CAC and launch the class they need. You can also preview your students’ experience by clicking the Student Portal link at the bottom of your side menu.
When your students are done with their work, make sure they save it to Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, or Adobe Creative Cloud—that way, they’ll be able to pick up where they left off in the next class!
When you’re finished with your classes for the day, simply log out of CAC.
