Virtual Classroom Schedule
Creating schedules for virtual classrooms: Both plans Virtual Classroom and the LMS (Learning Management System) offer the feature of creating schedules for your virtual classroom sessions so that participants could receive an invitation link for them and be aware of the starting and finishing date and time of each one of your sessions.
How to create schedules:
To set a Virtual classroom schedule, you need to log in with your account and access the “Virtual classrooms” (1) tab on the left side of your screen. You then need to select the “Schedules” so you can access the schedules menu.
To create an upcoming session, click on the “Schedule a live session” button (2).
From the same menu panel, you can also see all upcoming and previous sessions by using the drop-down menu on the left side (3).
Once you click on “Schedule a live session” a new page will open where you need to choose a title for the schedule, add a description set the date and time of the session, your local time zone as well as add the emails of the desired participants.
Note: the marked rows are mandatory.
Once done click on the Create new schedule button so you can proceed further.
Incoming sessions are visible in a list, ordered by date and you have access to all upcoming virtual classroom schedules you have created, also you will be able to edit or delete them by clicking on the three dots sign on the right side of any given schedule.
Past virtual classroom schedules can be deleted only by clicking on the three dots sign on the right side of any given schedule, after clicking on the Past sessions button first.
If you click on the session name you will be greeted with the full details of the scheduled session: name of the teacher, countdown timer (to the start of the session) and you can share the session as an activity in Google Classroom.
If you select the “Start now” button (in any of the previous pages) you will be redirected to the Virtual classroom opening page where you can still edit the Title, Description and invite additional participants by email. Pressing the “Start now” button will open the room.
