What has to be done after each finished lesson?

In the ever-evolving landscape of online education, efficiency and ease of use are paramount for teachers. One area where this is particularly evident is in managing lesson statuses. While previously this task required manual intervention, recent updates have simplified the process, allowing for automatic status changes.

Automatic Status Updates

Gone are the days of manually changing lesson statuses. Now, the system seamlessly updates the class status to "finished" overnight following the lesson. This automatic transition eliminates the need for instructors to perform this task manually, saving valuable time and streamlining administrative processes.

Manual Intervention

However, instructors still retain the option to manually adjust lesson statuses should they wish to do so. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to manually update lesson statuses:

Navigate to the lesson view

  • On the right-hand side, locate the 'Lesson status' option and select 'Finished.' (number 1 in the screenshot below)

'Set as finished' window

  • Leave a subject from the course program (number 2 in the screenshot below)

  • Instead of 'Custom Subject' use the 'Comments' to write additional information. (numbers 3 and 4 in the screenshot below)

  • If a Technical issue happens click on the square and leave a comment.

Mark presence

  • Mark student presence to ensure accurate attendance records by clicking on the red square.

Next lesson

  • If the teacher discusses the matter of the next lesson with the student and knows the exact date and time she/he can fill in the gaps and press 'Finish'. (number 6 in the screenshot below)

  • If not press 'finish' (number 6 in the screenshot below)

Student's view of the materials on the Student Space platform

For teachers and students alike, understanding how to access course materials on Student Space is essential for a smooth learning experience. This guide will outline two methods through which students can view their materials with clarity and ease.

Method 1: My Lessons Tab

Upon logging into Student Space, students will be directed to their main page.

  • Here, they can locate the 'My lessons' tab, which serves as the central hub for accessing all course materials and lessons. (screenshot below)

  • By selecting this tab, students will find a list of lessons, categorized into completed, canceled, and scheduled sessions. (screenshot below)

Each lesson is accompanied by 3 sections:

  • Materials pertaining directly to the lesson.

  • Pre-lesson materials.

  • Homework assignments.

❗ In addition, students may encounter Fluentbe Flashcards in select topics, situated beneath the homework assignment to reinforce vocabulary learned in class. ❗

Method 2: Course Plan Tab

Alternatively, students can explore the entire course curriculum through the 'Course plan' tab. (screenshot below)

Upon selecting this option, students gain access to a comprehensive view of the course program, including a detailed list of topics and associated materials.

❗ Note that while this option provides an overview of the course structure, progress within materials isn't saved, and they are presented in a raw format. Therefore, we recommend utilizing the 'My lessons' view for the efficient tracking and completion of materials. ❗
