Language Online Classes
Online Classes can now be created with the ability to allocate students across multiple locations.
An online class needs the Teacher/s, days and times entered as well as identifying the class as online. You cannot modify an existing class to be online. You must create a new class and specify it as online, then shift students from one class to another. Please mark a class as inactive if not being used. Classes can be created with an end date which should coincide with review date of regular language levels and resource reviews.
You may create the class as being held in an “online virtual room”.
Generally we encourage all classes to have specified an end date which is ideally when the class teachers, student allocation and rooms are reviewed and re-allocated. We provide a class copy function to minimize effort in entering days and times for a newly created class. Attendance can be marked for the online class.
