What is the recommended way for setting up Osmo in schools?

To set up a new Osmo, every teacher needs to go to this URL (which is printed on the inside of every Osmo product box):

https://my.playosmo.com/start

From there they'll receive a one-time activation code, which is only needed the very first time an iOS device is connected.

Please note that any device can be connected to any number of myOsmo accounts.

We have a video with Osmo setup instructions here:

Each teacher can then create student profiles under his or her myOsmo account if they need to save their students' game progress. In some cases, we've seen teachers create a single profile for an entire class (if saving individual game progress is not important).

To add student profiles, please log into your myOsmo account at [my.playosmo.com](my.playosmo.com) and click on 'myProfiles' on top of the page. You will be able to easily add multiple profiles and even upload a spreadsheet.

To upload a spreadsheet, first export it in CSV format. Here are the instructions for Microsoft Excel (other spreadsheet programs have similar options):

Or simply create a text file with student names and grade levels that looks, e.g., like this:

JohnSmith,PreK
MarySmith,1st grade
......

(PLEASE NOTE: profile names can only contain English alphabet letters and numbers; no spaces or special characters are allowed.)

You can also create profiles inside Osmo apps. To add player profiles inside an Osmo app, open any Osmo app on your iPad and tap on the myOsmo icon in the top right hand corner.

Once you have created one profile, you can tap on that profile's icon in the top right corner to get back to the profile creation screen and add more profiles.

After you create the profiles on one iPad, they will show up on any other iPads you may be using with Osmo. If they don't, please restart the Osmo apps, and the profiles should show up.

Students can connect to myOsmo by manually entering the activation code for their teacher's myOsmo account.

To do that, they can open any Osmo app and tap the myOsmo button (or a profile avatar button) in the top right corner of the home screen. Then they can tap 'Log-in' and tap 'School Login' in the pop-up window to connect with the activation code.
