This page outlines the default configuration of a Myplace class, as it would be set up automatically.

When are classes created?

All classcodes have an effective start and date date, class-sites are automatically created on Myplace in relation to the academic session of the effective start.

If a classcode has an effective start date of September 2020, it would be running in the 2020-21 academic session.

Future academic sessions for Myplace only become available after the rollover in June. 

No class sites for a future academic session are automatically created until this happens.

If a classcode is created during an academic year (say 19/20), the the corresponding class-site will be created on the current academic year of Myplace the following morning (approximatley 8am).

When a class-site is created it will be created so that student users may not access it. This allows staff the opportunity to create the content of the site.

Settings

When the class is created the following setttings are configured. These can be seen via the Class Administration > Edit Settings menu option.

NameDescriptionNotes
NameThe classcode & fullname for the classcode as defined in the class catalogue
Short NameThe classcode only as defined in the class catalogue
ID number

A unique identifier for the class code and academic session. 

This associates the classcode with this specific Myplace Class-site.

This is in the form WWXXX-1-1ACADYY-ZZ, where WWXXX is the classcode and YY-ZZ is the academic year (e.g. 19-20)

Enrolments

When a class-site is created Myplace will set up enrolments automatically, so that the class-site will have both the students registered for the class code and the staff assigned to roles / responsibilities for the class code.

By default a Current Class, Current Session enrolment method is added to the class-site. This uses the IDNumber in the class settings to fetch the list of students and staff.


Converting a Manually Created Class (single class code)

Where a class-site has been manually created follow the following check list to ensure that it behaves like an automatically created class-site associated with a class code

  1. Ensure the Rollover Over action on the Quick Settings block on the class-site page is set to Rollover. (You cannot change this once step 2 is set).
  2. Check the ID Number is set on the Class Administration > Edit Settings form, and matches the correct format and details.
  3. Ensure that there is an Current Class, Current Session enrolment method listed in the Enrolment Methods page.

Converting a Manually Created Class (multiple class code)

Where a class-site has been manually created follow the following check list to ensure that it behaves like an automatically created class-site associated with more than one class code.

  1. Ensure the Rollover Over action on the Quick Settings block on the class-site page is set to Rollover. (You cannot change this once step 2 is set).
  2. Ensure that the name of the class accurately reflects the classcodes associated with the class, on the Class Administration > Edit Settings form
  3. Check that all of the associated class codes are listed in the Shortname on the Class Administration > Edit Settings form
  4. Check the ID Number is set on the Class Administration > Edit Settings form is empty
  5. Ensure that there is a Any Class, Any Session enrolment method added for each associated class code.
  6. Disable (or, optionally, remove) any Current Class, Current Session enrolment methods (there should only be one and it should be listed as Misconfigured instance, as the class-code has been removed from the Idnumber In Step 4).
