There are a couple of different ways for students to be shared between multiple teachers' accounts. This article will cover how to use the Colleagues feature.

If you are looking for how to share students who are a part of a Google Classroom, please refer to our FAQ on Importing a Google Classroom.


Colleagues Basics

Using the Colleagues feature will send and receive invitations to other teachers to share students. Premium accounts can invite colleagues to share. Free accounts can accept invitations, but cannot issue invitations.

It is important to note that sharing students with a colleague will not give the colleague access to your Boom library, membership, points, or other purchases on your account. Colleagues will be able to assign decks only from their own library. This also applies to the data shown in Reports.

If you are needing to share decks that you have created, you can learn how to do so here.

CAUTION: If you use this feature, you may need to upgrade your account to accommodate more students.

How do I invite a Colleague?

From your Classes tab, locate the Colleagues button on the left side of your screen.

Click on the "Add Colleague" button. You will need their Boom Learning account email address to invite them. Enter their email into the text box and click "Okay."

Once they accept your invitation, you will be able to select which students you would like to share with them.

My colleague accepted their invitation. Now what?

Click "Requests" to view invitations. Then click the "Confirm" button.

Select one of your classrooms and click "Share Students with Colleague."

You can choose to share all students in the selected classrooms, or select individual students to share. Once you have made your selection, click "Next."

Confirm and click "Share."

The recipient will then receive a notification of the share.

How do I accept an invitation to be a colleague?

You will see a red badge on your Colleagues button if you have been invited to share students.

When you accept the invitation, the teacher who sent the invitation will then choose which students they would like to share with you. Once they do so, you will receive another notification to confirm.

Accept or reject the request with the presented buttons.

A new classroom will be imported with the created students. You can use move to move the imported students to a different classroom.
