Manage Edline Classes

When the district or school super user uploads the classes to Edline, the list of all the classes will be available under the Home File:en-us/Edline/040_Super_User/070_Webpage_Maintenance/030_Manage_Edline_Classes/homeicon.jpg button in the menu bar. From the Class List page, you will be able to determine when a class was last updated, change the visibility of classes, assign the scheduling period for classes, and change the status of classes.

  • From the menu bar hover over the Home File:en-us/Edline/040_Super_User/070_Webpage_Maintenance/030_Manage_Edline_Classes/homeicon.jpg button, and then select Classes to open the Class List page.

How to Monitor Updates to Classes

To monitor when teachers are updating their class pages, you can display the Class List page ordered by the last modified date. Edline determines the modified date by tracking all the changes made to class pages. These changes include the posting of new gradebook reports, adding assignments, adding news items, and adding calendar events.

  • From the Class List page, click the Modified column link. The system resorts the class list by the most recent change dates.

How to Manually Add a Class

New classes are usually added automatically to Edline in the regular data upload process used at your school. There may be times when you need to manually create a class not listed in your Student Information System (SIS). If you need to add one or two classes, complete the following instructions on the Class List page.

Any manually added class might be removed during the upload of classes the next year. Be sure your SIS is updated with any new classes.

  1. From the drop-down list to add content on the Class List page, select Class and click Add.
  2. Type the name of the class in the Class Name box.
  3. Type the identification for the class in the Class ID box.
  4. Click Save and Return.

How to Change the Visibility of Classes

As a super user for a district or school, you can change the visibility of several classes at once. This feature is helpful when you want to restrict the visibility of multiple subject pages for elementary classes.
