 Under **Administration > Centers and Classrooms**, is a good point to start. Click on the menu and the click the **Create New** button in the tool bar. There you can choose whether to create a center or a classroom, it´s important to know the difference (see notes below) and pick the right one. Creating a center, will allow tutors to create their own schedule and students to create appointments with specific tutors; also both students and tutors will be able to sign-in to the center so you can know how long they were in. Classrooms are intended for normal classes instead, where you can schedule regular courses that take place every week at a certain time and all enrolled students can sign-in when the class is taking place. Remember to hit the **Save Changes** button once you have entered all of the information. Under **Administration > Centers and Classrooms**, is a good point to start.

The device needs to have an Internet connection during this process.  When prompted, enter your admin User ID, your password, and the domain. The domain is what you type to access Accudemia, without the accudemia.net part. For example, if you access Accudemia by typing http://myschool.accudemia.net, then you just need to use your school info for the "myschool" in the domain. Once iAccu is installed, you can launch the application and sign-in using your Accudemia credentials.
