What is the recommended scheme for student account creation?
The My sCool Server facilitates continuity in learning.
Thus, it is strongly recommended that student accounts should be created first time when they access the computer lab and deleted only once they have passed out of school. This ensures that they always have access to their work history and desktop customisations as they progress through the grades.
Below are two recommended schemes for creating student accounts on the My sCool Server.
- If you may not have followed the recommended scheme as yet and want to transition to it, then checkout the mass user renaming feature.
- Temporary accounts may be created for assessments. Once the assessments have been successfully conducted, one may use the mass deletion feature to clean-up the temporary accounts.
