Can I start or extend a session outside school hours?

You can only start, extend, or end a session within the hours set by your school or district. For example, if your school has set the hours from 08:00 to 16:00 as school time, then you can only start, schedule, or extend a class within these hours.

The hours when you can start or extend sessions are configured by your school’s IT administrator in School Manager. Speak to your school’s IT administrator if you need to run sessions outside normal school hours.

I added the wrong class schedules. Can I still change them?

You can change scheduled classes by going to Class Settings, then selecting the Scheduling tab. To edit your scheduled classes:

  1. select the X next to the schedule, or
  2. select a new Start Time, or
  3. select a new End Time.
