Webdesk for Students
Webdesk webdesk.pisd.edu (Classlink) gives students access to their online textbooks and digital academic resources AND gives them access to files at school or in the cloud.
- This lightweight alternative to carrying textbooks around all day gives students access to all instructional/textbook-related materials they need.
- Students can customize their Webdesk dashboard by rearranging tiles, organizing tiles into folders, and changing the theme/background.
- Some apps/online textbooks are assigned to the Webdesk dashboard via our SIS (Frontline Teams) and those cannot be edited.
A student's My Classes will look something like the image below. Textbooks and digital resources needed for the class on a student's schedule will be conveniently located here by subject/class period.
