Setting Up Classrooms

Setting up a Roblox classroom is a quick process that includes tasks like getting accounts and software ready. Note, while this article overviews these topics, an in-depth, guided checklist is at the end of the course.

By the end of this article, you will:

  • Know the steps needed to create accounts and install Roblox on desired devices.
  • Understand how to find and share content relevant to learning objectives.

Accounts and Software

All Roblox accounts and software are free.

Getting Accounts

Account registration is through a form that asks for basic information like a birthday. Names are not needed for sign-up. While emails aren't requested at signup, it's recommended to add one since forgotten passwords can only be recovered through email.

Each account grants that user full access to:

  • Play experiences with Roblox Client.
  • Code and create experiences with Roblox Studio.

Accounts in the Class

Every student and educator needs their own account. Compared to other educational tools, accounts are individual and not managed by an institution or person. Since Roblox is used for both home and school, we believe this system respects the privacy of our students.

When starting a Roblox class, keep in mind that accounts cannot be created in a batch. It's recommended students create accounts outside class. Also, plan to manage passwords, such as by using password manager software.

Installing Software

Roblox is two software packages (Client and Studio), each installed separately.

Software can be installed in two ways:

  • Individual installations per computer: Install Roblox by downloading the software from a web browser on each device. Ideal for small classrooms, workshops, or small summer camps.
  • Batch Installers: Create a packaged installer that can be deployed on multiple computers using a USB drive or image. Ideal for schools or larger educational institutions.

For more information, see How to Install and Play Roblox. These instructions will also be summarized at the end of the course.

Finding Educational Content

With accounts and software ready, the next step is to find relevant content. Whether it's playing experiences or designing projects, there are many options that align to educator needs.

Virtual Learning Experiences

The Roblox platform hosts millions of pre-made experiences created by the community. In the Learn and Explore sort, curated by educators at Roblox, students can find historical roleplays, physics simulations, or creative building games.

Code and Creation

For educators interested in creation, students can build and code using Roblox Studio. Our content is developed for a variety of ages and subjects, such as digital citizenship or teaching computer science.

Sharing Content With Students

Virtual Learning Experiences

Once you have an experience, students can access it using a unique hyperlink. Links are sharable through email or a learning management system (e.g. Google Classroom).

Additionally, when playing an experience, we recommend using a private server. Normally, playing Roblox means interacting with players across the world. Private servers are spaces that only include those you've permitted to join, like students. Each private server has its own shareable hyperlink that can be provided to students.

Code and Creation

Students using Roblox Studio for projects are instructed by educators. Most of the assets, such as templates and 3D models, are already built into Studio. For teachers with specific needs, such as if you have a premade template to share, files can be shared locally to students.

Communicating About Roblox

Before beginning a Roblox class, you may have questions from different people such as parents or administrators. Resources and printable brochures are included below.


Resources and handouts are available about the safety and educational benefits of Roblox.
