Add a Classroom block to a program

  • Updated

Classrooms are live events of your programs. They can be virtual or onsite, and have several slots.

Inviting learners to a Classroom requires three steps:

  • Add a Classroom block to a program (current article), which handles:
    • adding a Classroom block to a program template;
    • adding default messages and attachments to the block for all sessions.
  • Add a Classroom slot to a session, which handles:
    • creating virtual or onsite Classroom slots;
    • creating additional slots;
    • managing dates for each slot;
    • adding trainers;
    • adding slot-specific messages and attachments.
  • Register Learners to Classroom slots, which handles:
    • registering learners to slots;
    • unregistering learners from slots;
    • switching users around slots;
    • allowing learners to self-register to slots.

We will use the term Classroom block to refer to a Classroom in a program template, and Classroom slot to refer to a Classroom in a program session.
