When a classroom is Unlocked, learners can enter without having an instructor logged in.
Engageli classrooms are unlocked by default.
To unlock a classroom:
Go to the Admin Portal.
Click Classes (Class Management in v3.0) on the left to expand the menu.
Select your class or use the search field to find your class.
Click the class name.
- Click Unlock Class in the upper right corner.
When an Engageli class is not in session, it is considered “locked” or closed. This means that you can edit your roster, create table presets, name tables, add video clips to be shared, and upload documents to be distributed during class.
When an Engageli class is in session, it is considered “unlocked.” You can still access the class settings through the Portal but you will have some limitations as to what changes you can make.
You need to “lock” or end the class in order to:
- Delete or edit users from the roster.
- Change a learner’s gallery position or group table.
- Change table names.
- Add tables.
- Remove tables
- Add or remove table presets
- Add or edit materials
- Edit sub-rooms
- Enable guest links.
You can choose to lock the class in order to make any of the above changes, but doing so will end the class and remove the learners from the classroom.
Note: When the class is “unlocked” or in session, you can still add people to the roster, but you can’t delete them or edit their roles (instructor, TA, student).
