Class Setup

If you are teaching a Live Online course, we encourage you to use Class!  Class works as a Zoom overlay and has many additional teaching and learning features and tools that Zoom alone does not have.  You can find additional information, including a short demo about Class in the Class Toolkit.

  2. Enable Class by dragging the Class menu item to the top section.
  3. Drag the Zoom menu item to the bottom section to hide it.

5. You should now see Class in your course navigation menu. (If you don't see it, you may have forgotten to click save.)
