Which settings are class-specific?
A class is a cohort of learners who complete a course together.
There can be multiple classes within one course on OpenLearning. The course runs primarily the same for each class. However, there are a few settings that are or can be made to be class-specific.
You can create a different set of questions for each class in your course.
Announcement pages are different from class to class. When you post an announcement, only learners of that specific class are notified.
Your course banner is automatically set to be the banner in all of your classes. However, if you upload a class banner, it will appear as the course banner in that specific class.
The pace of each class can be set differently. You can have one or multiple classes set as open, self-paced or with different start dates and schedules.
Separate classes can be public, private - manual enrolment, or private - accessed via an access code.
Each class can be free or paid.
The learner list for each class will reflect the learners enrolled specifically in that class.
Learner Enrolment Numbers
In each class, you can now set the number of total enrolments allowed.
If I have more than one class open at a time, which one do learners enrol in when they click Join Now?
Each course has a featured class which you can configure under Course Setup > General > Classes in your Course which functions as a default class.
However, if there are multiple available classes, it will allow you to select the class that you wish to enrol in.
