This feature can be enabled by getting your Account Owner to turn on the feature setting for Class management in Account Settings. Read more about how to do this in How to turn on class management.
When class management is enabled:
1. Any facilitator who has been added as a main facilitator will be able to add and remove learners, other facilitators, and coaches, as well as change dates from the Class page. Read more about Adding a main facilitator.
2. When an author publishes a new tasks course, they will have the option to activate a class for this course. They will automatically be added as a main facilitator. This doesn't apply to legacy courses.
Facilitators who have been added as a main facilitator
Some organisations prefer to have a central person(s) manage setting up all the course activations. If this is the case it is more likely that you will be given class management permissions by being added as a main facilitator to a specific class.
Once added as a main facilitator, head to Class console (for tasks courses) or Class (for legagy activities and assessment) and you'll see the options to add learners, facilitators, coaches and edit dates.
As a Main facilitator, your name and a bio will be displayed on the learner's course overview page. See more info on How to use facilitator bios to introduce yourself to your learners.
For authors (who also will be the facilitators for the class)
If you're an author who creates a
Task-based course, when you publish, you'll get the option to automatically activate a class of this course using the default settings. This option will only appear the first time you publish and not if you make further edits.
The class activation starts on the day you publish and follows any rules you set up in the study plan for when tasks are due. You and any other authors on this course will be automatically added as Main facilitators. This means your names and bios will be displayed on the learner's course overview page. See more info on How to use facilitator bios to introduce yourself to your learners.
You'll be taken directly to the Class console page of your new class and from there you can adjust the end and due dates, and add your learners, other facilitators and/or coaches.
