Customize or update students' avatars / monsters

Web, iOS, Android

From the Web

There are three main ways you can change your students' avatars using the website! 

Let students create their own:

  1. Find the class where you'd like to have students open accounts and customize their avatars
  2. Click the "Invite Parents and Students" button on the bottom of the title
  3. This will download a PDF with your students' codes. Save it to your computer, print them out, and distribute

Use the ClassDojo pre-created avatar sets:

  1. Open the class you want to change the avatars in on the ClassDojo homepage
  2. Click "Settings" on the right side of the screen
  3. Click "Edit Class" in the dropdown menu
  4. Click the student whose avatar you want to change (the actual avatar image, not the text)
  5. Click the avatar
  6. In the new pop-up, click on the avatar you want to use and click "Done"

Upload your own images to represent your students:

  1. Open the class you'd like to upload images for
  2. Click "Settings" on the right side of the screen
  3. Click “Edit Class” in the dropdown menu
  4. Click on the student whose avatar you want to change (the actual avatar image, not the text)
  5. Click "ClassDojo Monsters" and click "Create New Set" 
  6. Name the set and click "Create monster set"
  7. Click "Upload Monsters"
  8. Upload or drag your custom images into the Filepicker pop up
  9. You will now be able to choose these images as avatars for your students
  10. Note: You can always click "Restore student-created monster" to remove the teacher-created avatar and replace it with the student-created monster!                                                                               

Note: We don't currently allow you to edit or delete the avatar set once it's been created. 

iOS

  4. Select the student you want to change the avatar for
