This article provides steps on how to create groups and block sites for individual students in Lightspeed. For more information on Lightspeed please refer to this article: Lightspeed Overview
From your Dashboard navigate to Groups. Under Groups, you will create individual student groups. Click the green + button to create a new group. You will see an Add Group menu pop up. Here you will name the group as the student name and add a note when the group was created.
Example: Name: Jane Doe
Notes: Group created 4/24.
Once you're done entering the group information click the green check mark and the group will be created. (You may need to refresh your screen for the group to appear.)
You should now see the group created under your school.
To view this group and add the student, click on the group name and the group menu will open. From the menu, under Members click the green + button to add the student.
You will see an Add User menu appear. Search for the students name, select them, and click Add.
You will now see the student in the selected group.
Now that the individual student group is created, sites can be added to the group to block for the student. Return to your School Groups tab. To open the student group, hover over the group name and click the blue arrow to the right that appears.
You should see that you're drilled into the individual student group by the name at the top. From this group, find Internet Access < Custom Block List.
In the Custom Block List section you can add sites by clicking the green + and the Custom Block List menu will pop up for you to add a site.
Once you've entered a site, click Save, and you will see the site under the Custom Block List.
To check the site is blocked for the individual student, select the Users tab, find the student and click on their name to open their Student Report. From the Student Report, find the Rules tab, scroll down to Custom Block, select it, and you will see the sites being blocked.
To return to your School group, select the drop down menu from the top where you see the current group name that you're in and the Switch Groups menu will open.
Click your School from the Switch Groups menu and it will refresh back into the main School Group.
From here you can now repeat the process for creating Groups for individual students if needed.
Removing a Student/Site from Group
If you want to remove a student from their individual group, navigate back into the designated group menu by clicking the group name. From the group menu, find the student name and click the blue x to Remove Membership. The student will then be removed from the individual group.
If you want to remove a site from the individual student Custom Block List, navigate to Internet Access < Custom Block List. From the Custom Block List, click the grey x to the right of the site you want to remove and it will be deleted.
