How to share Class Access Codes with Learners

If you have individual classes set up on Siyavula, you can send your class access code to your learners via email or WhatsApp to allow them to join your class or you can give them the access code and they can link to your class via their home page. Once they have joined your class, they will receive the assignments you set for them and they will appear in your class reporting.

What is an access code?

When you have individual classes setup on Siyavula, each class has an access code which is unique to that class. If a learner has that access code, they can link themselves to your class/es so that they can receive assignments and so that they appear in your class reporting.

Retrieve your class access code

Log in to Siyavula and click on the Teacher Dashboard button.
View your classes by scrolling down.
Select which class you would like the access code for and click on the AccessCodes link.

Option 1. Send learners an email or WhatsApp with your class access codes

From your access code page, you can either send an email to all your learners with your class details (Share by email) or you can send them a WhatsApp with a link to join your class. If you click on the option to share by WhatsApp or Email, the system will open up an email or WhatsApp for you in the tool of your choice with the content pre-populated - all you will need to do is add email addresses or phone numbers of the learners to send to.

When learners have logged in to their account, they have an option to link themselves to a class. They just need to scroll to the bottom of their home page and click on the pink box which says "Link to a Class":

Once learners are linked, you should see them in your class list and in the reporting.
