The Quick Settings block is visible in every class within the top-right hand corner of your class page.
The first 2 settings are switch type on/off buttons for Class Open and Guest Access.
Class Open - This is where class admins/tutors etc. can quickly ensure that a class page is closed to their students. You might use this function when you are updating the activities or resources and do not wish for students to be using this page. Registry classes are set to 'No' by default at the beginning of each year.
Guest Access - This is set to 'Yes' by default. When set to 'Yes' any staff or student can find the class using the 'Find a class' button. Any staff member or student (except enrolled students - they will be locked out until the class is opened) will then be able to access all resources in a class such as weblinks, documents and video on the main class page. Of course any of this can be restricted to enrolled class members using the restrict access settings. If set to 'No' staff and students outwith the class will not be able to see this class at all. It will be fully restricted.
Enrolment Methods is a link to view the different ways students and staff are enrolled on the class. This can also be accessed from the administration block under Class administration>Users>Enrolment methods.
Adding additional class and programme enrolment methods to a class can be requested by emailing Myplace Support.
Commonly used enrolments include:
Class enrolments which are 5 character codes generated in PEGASUS (e.g. X9917, AG111, 16130) and represent a cohort of students and/or staff involved in a specific class.
Class codes can be set to automatically enrol staff and students combined or either cohort separately. It can also be set to bring through any library data attached to the class code or just the cohort without any library data.
Programme Enrolments which are codes in the format 4 digits and 2 single digits separated by comma's generated in PEGASUS (e.g. 5788,2,1) and represent a cohort of students and/or staff involved in a specific programme
Like class codes, programme codes can enrol students, staff or both. It can also be set to be year specific. There is no library data attached to programme codes.
- Manual enrolments - see informal roles/manual enrolments.
- Self enrolment can be used to set up a page to allow students to enrol themselves on entry.
Gradebook Settings takes you to a page where you can quickly hide/unhide gradeable activities in the class.
From this screen, you can quickly hide and unhide the all graded items (assignments etc.) from the Students gradebook. The two options above grant the class admin/tutor access to either:
- Hide the Gradebook in its entirety from the students (possibly while marking is completed on many graded items)
- Hide individual graded items for example, as shown above, Assignment 1 and turnitin test graded items have been hidden and the rest of the items have been left visible in the Students gradebook.
