Viewing Classes and Presentations

THIS TOPIC deals with viewing classroom material after the class has been captured and posted to the class list. For viewing classes in real-time (as they are happening) see Viewing Live Classes (Student view).

Classes are grouped by courses. To view a list of all classes for a particular course, you can:

Use the class list to find the class you want to watch and to see what materials your instructor may have posted for upcoming classes. See Understanding class list page icons below for descriptions of the indicators on the Classes page.

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.

To watch a class

  1. From the DASHBOARD, click ALL CLASSES for the section whose class you want to watch.

  5. Use the volume control and playback speed buttons to control those aspects of your viewing.
  6. Click the thumbnails to switch between visual feeds, if the classroom contains multiple visual feeds (e.g., the classroom recording captured dual video or video and display, and there is a presentation loaded to the class).
  7. Use the classroom toolbar on the left to navigate between classes, enter or respond to questions, and take notes during the classroom viewing.

You can also access the most recent classes from your Dashboard. Click the preview thumbnail in the Dashboard for the class to jump directly to that classroom.
