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.
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 students 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 self-paced or with different start dates and schedules. However, only one Open MOOC can be active at a time.
Type of Course
Separate classes can be private, paid, or accessed via an activation code.
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.
If I have more than one class open at a time, which one do students enrol in when they click Join Now?
