How do I create a class?

Classes are used to schedule meeting times and give students access to lab and course activities for instructor led training. If labs or course activities are not needed for the meeting, then a Custom Event can be used. When the TMS is used to schedule your classes, then, the labs are available to students based on the course you choose for the class.

To create a class, on the Site Administration on the Classes tile, click the Create Class link. This opens up the Create Class page. On the Basic Information section, to add a Course, click the Choose button. On the Choose Course dialog, input part of the course Name and click Search. Then, select the course from the search results and click OK. This brings you back to the Create Class page with the course added. You may change the Display Name, if needed. Verify the Center is correct. Set the Maximum Students field to the total number of students that can be enrolled. Verify the Status field is marked Scheduled. Modify other fields as needed.

Next, expand the Session Times section. Select the Add Multiple Session Times link. The # Sessions field will default to match the number of training days set up on the course you selected for this class. Verify this is the correct number of days. For Days, select the pattern of days your class will run, e.g. Mon, Wed, Fri or Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri. Sessions will be added or skipped based on the pattern you select. Use the First Day field to choose the first day of class. Modify the Start Time and End Time as needed. Click OK.

Then, expand the Delivery section. Select the Add Classroom link and click Search. Select the classroom(s) and then click OK.

Expand the Instructors section and click Add Instructor. Input part of the Last Name and First Name of the instructor and click Search. Select the instructor from the search results. If you have more than one instructor, search for and select the other instructors. Once all the instructors for the class are selected, click OK.

Finally, click Save to create the class. Note: the other sections (Visibility, Payment, and HTML Description) can be changed later. Once the class is created the TMS creates a template by retaining all of your selections except for the class dates, this is to help you create additional classes more quickly.
