Exciting News for Educators!

We are thrilled to introduce the Onshape Educator plan! This innovative offering is now available for free to teachers and mentors dedicated to shaping the future generation of engineers. Tailored to optimize the CAD and data management capabilities of Onshape, the new Educator Plan encompasses advanced features such as Classes & Assignments and Onshape Simulation

Built specifically for the needs of educators, Classes & Assignments provides an easy way to manage your class rosters, assign documents, and receive submissions from students. Educators, once your account has been upgraded, create classes quickly using the familiar blue Create button, add students to your roster, and publish the class. 

What Your Students Will Experience:

With the latest update, students gain the ability to effortlessly navigate to your class, streamlining their access to assignments and simulation. This enhancement facilitates a quicker review of the work at hand, enabling them to dedicate more class time to honing their design skills.

Enhanced Educator Control:

Educators will now enjoy a comprehensive overview of assignment statuses for all students, gaining the ability to efficiently monitor progress and close assignments once completed. This streamlined process simplifies the student and teacher interfaces, offering a more seamless and intuitive document management experience.

Effortless Grading with Assignment View:

Grading is now more convenient than ever for educators using the assignment view. This feature provides a clear snapshot of each student's status, indicating who has submitted their assignments, who is still actively working, and who has yet to open their assignment. This comprehensive insight eases the grading process, making it a more efficient and organized experience for educators.

Unlock the Power of the Educator Plan:

Verify that you qualify for the plan and upgrade to the enhanced Educator Plan by filling out this form! Take advantage of advanced features tailored to meet the specific needs of educators shaping the future generation of engineers.

**Kindly note that enterprise owners and users need not pursue an upgrade, as enterprise accounts inherently possess these capabilities and more!

    I like how easy it is to push out content and set up classes. Having looked at the self paced training course for this I appreciate you not wanting to wade in to VLE territory but a completed option next to submitted work would be handy.

    Is there a way to generate a link/code for students to join a class? Or is the only option to type in every email/ upload a CSV?

    I'm afraid there is no option for a join code at this time.
