Teaching an On-line Lesson

May 19, 2018Karol Wojtyła

SchoolMate has integrated with an on-line lesson platform called LearnCube. Lessons which are created as online lessons will take you to the LearnCube virtual classroom. Your students will be sent an email to join you there and you can teach the lesson. Attendance, lesson comments etc., can then be entered in SchoolMate as normal.

The information below is all in Class Details. There is a full tutorial on Class Details here

How do I know which lessons are online?

A group may have a mixture of on-line and classroom based lessons. After you have logged in to your SchoolMate account:

  1. Go to Classes – Class Details
  2. Select a Group or leave empty to see all Groups.
  3. Select the period for which you want to see lessons.
  4. On-line lessons are marked like this.
