Live Classes are smaller, instructor led sessions that encourage more social learning and knowledge sharing, such as an Onboarding session or team upskilling workshop.

To create your Live Class:

  1. Select Live Class from the Studio (Or use the (+) icon shortcut, on the homepage).

2. Fill in the following fields of Step One, the Information step.

  • Live Class Name - the title of the content, searchable by assigned Users.

  • Live Class Summary - a brief description, visible on the content card.

  • Description - providing further detail about the Live Class session and adding any important links.

  • Channels - assign the class to the relevant Channel - usually based on the topics included.

  • Skills - map relevant Skills to your Live Class so Users will know what Skills they'll gain, when attending.

  • Language - the language the live class will be held in. This can be viewed via the Dashboard data tables.

  • Collaborators - Contributors, Managers or Admins who can help you edit the content you're creating.

  • Cost Per Learner - if you want to make the Live Class into premium content, set a cost for Users to spend their Learning Budget towards.

  • Verifier - the subject-matter expert, responsible for checking the content based on the Verification Interval.

2. Set the Date & Time:

  • Live Class Duration - in increments of 30 mins

  • When do bookings close? - how many minutes a User can book a class before it starts.

  • Select Date and Time of Event - set the date and time slot of the course, and the region. You can also set a Recurring Event.

4. Add Resources (Step Three) if needed and Assign your Learners (Step Four).

5. Set up the availability at the Release & Deadline step:

  • Live Class Type:

    • Zoom - integrate with Zoom and enable up to 10000 Users to join a meeting (dependent on the level of your Zoom account subscription).

    • GoToWebinar - integrate with GoToWebinar to host your webinars.

    • HowNow Virtual Classroom - Have up to 10 Users join the class, with a virtual whiteboard.

    • Custom Link - Use other virtual classroom links instead (e.g, Google Meets)

  • Session Type allows you to select one of the two options:

  • Group session - this will open the maximum allowed bookings per session option, and cancel the session if minimum number of bookings is not reached.

  • One-to-one - best for classes with individual users assigned.

  • Live Class Availability - make it available immediately or schedule its release to your Users.

  • Live Class Deadline - allows you to add a deadline should this be required.

  • Renewal Cycle (Expiry Date) - this is great for compliance content, encouraging Users to re-attend, once the Live Class learning has expired.

6. Once happy with everything, select Save & Publish

Remember✨: For content that is already published: if you want to schedule it to become available at a later date, you will need to do the following: Unpublish the content > set the scheduled date > click "Publish" in order to (re)publish the content.

Note ✨: When you have booked a Live Class, you will receive two reminder emails. One email a day before, and a second email 1 hour before.
