Understanding the Instructor's Class List

When you navigate to a particular course, the Classes tab for the course appears by default. This is typically referred to as the class list page, and logically, lists all of the classes for that course/section.

To open the Class List page:

The course appears with the Classes tab active (see the image at the bottom of this page). The class list provides access to the class-related functionality described here.  

Classes whose text is grayed out are future classes; classes in black have already happened (or have no date/time).  All classes are available to enter or publish content to. The differentiation in color is simply to identify those classes that have not yet occurred.

You can temporarily sort the class list using the Sort by drop-down at the top of the class list. This temporarily puts the classes in chronological order, but applies only to the current view. Once the page is refreshed, the class list returns to it's original order, including any manual reordering you or another instructor may have done.

Class List functionality is as follows:

NOTE: Deleting a class also deletes all student notes, bookmarks, Q&A and analytic data for the class. The media contained in the class still resides in your LIBRARY page but will need to be published again for students to view it.

 

See which classes will be streamed LIVE. If your classes will be streamed live and in real-time, a LIVE badge appears next to the Class Name.

Note that a green dot always indicates a class happening at the moment. Only classes with a LIVE badge are captured and streamed in real-time to class participants.

Click on a Content Icon to open a menu with commands for that media, such as view, edit presentation, edit availability settings, remove, etc. See Working with Class Content for additional topics and information.

Select View from the Content Icon menu to enter the classroom with that content item maximized and in focus.

Click a PLUS icon (Plus icon for adding content to a class as described) to add content to the class. You can add ONE video and/or ONE presentation to each class. If you have additional content you want to publish to the course, create a new class to hold the content.

Click the Conversation Bubble icon (Q&A icon) to open the Q&A tab and view the questions and responses posted for the class. The number to the right of the icon indicates how many questions have been posted for that class.
