Roster Classes with Google Classroom
If you have a school or districtwide subscription and your administrator has set up SSO with G Suite for Education, you can import your Google Classroom rosters into My BrainPOP on demand.
Note: Your Google domain super administrator must install and set up the SSO app for your domain before you can begin using Google Classroom rostering.

Importing Classes with Google Classroom
The first time you log into BrainPOP from the G Suite SSO app, you will be prompted to import any Google Classroom rosters you may have. Importing creates corresponding classes in My BrainPOP and automatically sets up associated students with Google SSO.
- Sign into BrainPOP using G Suite for Education by clicking Sign in with G Suite for Education on BrainPOP or BrainPOP Jr. (BrainPOP ELL link coming soon!). Alternatively, you can use the Google Launcher in Google Apps for all three sites.
- Click My Classes.
- A dialog box invites you to import classes. Importing classes from Google Classroom will create corresponding classes in My BrainPOP and create SSO accounts for the students.
If you decide not to import classes when prompted, you can always import them later by selecting Import New Class in My Classes.
- Select the classes that you would like to import.
- Confirm the class selection(s). You can Continue to proceed or Go Back to choose again.
- Click Finish Import and view your class in My Classes.
You can also find these instructions in the Importing Google Classroom Rosters Step Guide.
Updating Class Rosters
If your Google Classroom roster changes, you can update the corresponding My BrainPOP class at any time.
- Click My Classes.
- Select the class you want to update, then click Manage Class. The option Update Class Roster will appear.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to re-import the class. The new import will add any additional students that have joined your class since your last import or update. It will not remove any students from your class.
If you set up classes in My BrainPOP before you started using G Suite SSO, you can match existing My BrainPOP classes to your Google Classroom rosters. The first time you log in with G Suite SSO, a dialog box will prompt you to match your existing classes.
- Choosing Yes prompts you with a list of your existing My BrainPOP classes and your available Google Classroom classes. Matching classes links the existing My BrainPOP student accounts for SSO through Google Apps.
- You will see a list of Google students for each class along with a dropdown of the My BrainPOP student accounts available for matching. If you selected multiple classes for matching, you can match each class individually.
- After matching classes, you will be prompted to import any existing Google Classroom classes that have not been matched to My BrainPOP classes. This is optional.
If you choose to skip this step, you can always match classes later by navigating to Manage Class and selecting Match Class.

Frequently Asked Questions
I have a classroom subscription and I use Google Classroom. How do I roster my students?
Only school and districtwide subscriptions are eligible for Google Classroom rostering at this time. If you have a schoolwide subscription, but your G Suite domain is districtwide, your district administrator needs to install and set up the G Suite SSO app before you can import your classes from Google Classroom.
Why don’t I see the option to import my classes?
You need to log in with G Suite to see the Import Classes option. You also need to have active classes with students in Google Classroom.
Do my rosters in My BrainPOP update automatically?
Not at this time. You can Update Roster to add new students to your classroom.
Why is ‘Match Classes’ not appearing?
The ‘Match Classes’ option only appears when you have created a My BrainPOP class with an educator code and have existing Google Classroom classes that have not been imported or matched previously.
