If you work with the virtual class every day, you have to log in and out of the platform quite often.
Both teachers and students should never leave a computer unattended when they are logged in!
As a teacher you have to make sure that no one can access your students' data via your user account (this applies to all applications, not just
There are several ways to guarantee security and at the same time to make using the platform easier.
Please also read the notes on security!

Teacher Computer

If you as a teacher work with a class book, text editor and / or work plans on every day, it is very cumbersome if you have to log in and out constantly.
The simplest solution is to log on to the teacher's computer at the desk and then use a screensaver with password protection. So you can stay logged in all day, but access to your computer is always secured.
Students are not allowed to know the password of the teacher computer. If students are allowed to use this computer, there should be a separate user account on the computer.
When you log in as a teacher at home, your teacher computer in the class is automatically logged out.
It becomes more cumbersome when several teachers work in one class:
Teachers should generally not share their user accounts, i.e. every teacher should always log in himself and not continue working with the login of another teacher.
Remember that the platform also stores which person e.g. when worked on which documents. If teachers continue to work under the user name of other teachers, it will no longer be possible to see which teachers have worked on which documents and projects.
It also becomes difficult if there are several teachers working in a team and if there are several teacher computers within the team, as the teachers may then have to switch back and forth between several computers.
It is often easiest to "activate" one or more teacher computers in your class as teacher workstations, this has several advantages:
The teacher computer is always ready for use and your virtual class can be entered as the start page of your web browser.
The teacher computer on your desk remains logged in, even if you log in and out at home.
There can be several teacher computers in a class or in a team, and all teachers of the team can switch freely between these computers without inconsistencies with user names.
Warning: Teacher computers should always be password-protected, and whenever a teacher leaves an activated computer, a screensaver with password protection should always be activated immediately.
Weider below explains how you can unlock a computer as a permanent teacher job.

student computer

Students should generally always log on to the computer with their password.
Students should know the password by heart, and passwords should not be written down in class or in school materials (box, class booklet, ...).
If students log in with a password, they can e.g. Write texts in the text editor, upload documents to your media folder, or view or update your work or weekly schedules.
While this shouldn't be a problem for older students, this is often a hurdle for younger students.
We recommend in this case to activate student computers for your own virtual class, so that the students can be productive in their virtual class without logging in. This has several advantages:
The students can write texts on any unlocked computer in the class without having to log in.
Students can switch back and forth between computers without having to log out and back in again and again.
You can still log in with a password on a computer that is activated as a student computer for your class, and you will then still have access to other virtual classes.
Students can still log in from home with their password (possibly with the help of their parents).

Unlock teacher or student computer

First, the virtual class needs to know which computers are in your class. You may have already specified this correctly in the class wizard, and the corresponding settings can be found here: "Start of the virtual class"> "Settings"> "Computer".
Make sure that all of your computers are in the list and give your computers understandable names (e.g. teacher 1, teacher 2, student 1, student 2, ...).
You can assign a code to each computer so that it is easy to identify.
You can also print out labels with the codes and names of the computers here, which you can then stick on the computers.
If the list of your class computers is entered correctly, you now have to unlock each of these computers.
Log in to the appropriate teacher or student computer.
Click on "Meng Klass" at the top of the main menu, and then on the orange button "Authorize computer".
Enter the security code and then select your virtual class.
Select the computer in the list that corresponds to the computer you are on (labels can be helpful here).
If this computer should be a teacher computer, then select the option "teacher computer".
  • Press the "continue" button, then your computer will be activated.
Don't forget that all unlocked teacher computers allow full access as a teacher, i.e. this option may only be used for computers at the teacher's desk, which are then only used by teachers.
The activation is only valid for a web browser, so you always have to use the same browser so that the activation works! If you want to use multiple browsers, you have to enter a separate computer for each browser in the list (e.g. "Teacher 1 - Chrome", "Teacher 1 - Firefox", ...)
If there are two separate accounts for teachers and pupils on one computer, then separate activations apply to these two accounts. You can activate a computer for both teachers and students (1 activation per computer account, which then corresponds to 2 computer entries in the virtual class).
Don't forget to add password protection and a password-protected screensaver to all unlocked teacher and student computers.
Teacher computers should have a strong password (8 or more characters).
Student computers can be given a simpler password that all students know.

Important note!

Attention! Under no circumstances may teachers ...
... give the students their own password.
... allow the students to use a computer on which they are logged in.
... Unlock student computers with their own password and then let students work on them.
Remember that the teacher login allows access to all data of the class and possibly also to other applications of the Ministry of Education!
