Reordering and Grouping Classes
By default, classes in the Class List are listed by date
and time, with the oldest class appearing at the top and classes without
dates appearing at the bottom of the class list.
Instructors can change the order of their class list to:
- Sort the classes in chronological order, either
with the newest class first or the oldest class first.
Sorting by "oldest" moves all classes and
groups that do not have dates/times to the top of the list. Sorting by
"newest" moves non-dated classes and groups to the bottom of
the list. If necessary you can edit
the details of a class or group to change or remove the date/time,
and/or change the name of the item.
- Move classes to reflect the order in which
you want students to view the materials.
- Move classes into groups created to provide
a logical set of similar topics.
- More accurately reflect the order in which
you want students to view the material, or to group similar classes
The changes you make to the class list order is the Default
order shown to students. Students can temporarily sort their view of the
class list (oldest/newest) but the Instructor's set order for classes
is what appears by default and on refresh for students.

rows to move the item up and down in the list.
- Repeat any of these steps as necessary.
- When finished, click SAVE.
Students coming to the class list page will now see the
classes in their new order. They still have the option to temporarily
sort their view by newest or oldest class, but on refresh and by default
all students (and other instructors) see the order you set.
