Which settings are class-specific?

A class is a cohort of students 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.

Understanding classes

Pre-enrolment Questions

You can create a different set of questions for each class in your course.

How do I set up pre-enrolment questions for my course?



Announcement pages are different from class to class. When you post an announcement, only students of that specific class are notified.

How do I send course announcements?



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.

How do I change my banner?



The pace of each class can be set differently. You can have one or multiple classes set as self-paced or with different start dates and schedules. However, only one Open MOOC can be active at a time.

Student List

The student list for each class will reflect the students enrolled specifically in that class. If a student is enrolled in a class, they do not have access to other classes in your course.

What happens when I enrol a student to a course?


If I have more than one class open at a time, which one do students enrol in when they click Join Now?

Each course has a default class which you can configure under Course Setup > General > Classes in your Course

When you go to the course promo page and click the Join Now button it will enrol you into the default class.
