Creating QrKeys to connect your LearnPads to the network

Connecting your LearnPads to your school’s network is quick and easy. Rather than manually entering the details of your school’s network on each LearnPad, you simply create QrKeys which you scan on each of your LearnPads.
Before proceeding, please note that to protect your school’s security, the information that you enter on the QrKeys paged is not stored on the LearnPad servers and you will need to re-enter it to generate your QrKeys again. When you come to printing your QrKeys, you might choose to print multiple copies to keep on file.
