Work with classes
Working with classes in your teaching tool can save you a lot of time, and makes it easier for your students too. In this course you'll learn how to work with classes in LessonUp, and which tips you really shouldn't miss to save time.
teach directly to a class
When you are teaching a live lesson, you can choose to teach directly to a class. This way your students don't have to enter the lesson pin code. This has several advantages when teaching:It saves time at the beginning of the lesson, you don't have to wait for students who haven't entered the code yet.Students always come into the lesson with their real names.You will not have 'unwanted' students in your lesson. Students have an account on lessonup.app. Once you started the live lesson, your students will see a notification in their account that the lesson is starting. Teachers view Student view
Share lessons with a class
When you want to share a lesson with your students, it is best to do this with a class. This way you can share the lesson with all students in once. Also you will be able to access lesson reporting. More about that in the course 'Keep track of student progress'. Once you shared the lesson, it appears in the students' account on lessonup.app. The students can then go through the lesson at their own pace. It is also possible to share the lesson with specific students in that class. Choose 'select students'.

Keeping track of student progress
In this course you learn how to view the lesson results of a live or shared lesson at different levels. In the course 'Work with classes' you learned how to create a class. This is necessary to be able to track student progress. If you have not yet created a class, please review the previous course.
keeping track: week level
In this overview you will see a report of the lessons that your class has followed that week. These can be live lessons or shared lessons. You can see how many students have accessed the lesson (in the green progress bar) and how far they have progressed in the lesson (in the yellow progress bar). You can use this overview to quickly see if your students are working on the material. You can find this overview by clicking on one of your classes and on lesson results.
keeping track: Lesson level
For a more detailed report you can view the lesson report. Here you can see how your students performed per slide on a class or individual level. You can open the reports by clicking on a lesson and then on reports or by going to 'latest reports' at the bottom left of your screen.
keeping track: student level
Classes are getting bigger, there are fewer teachers available, but it is still important to give students individual feedback. You can use student reporting on an individual level for that.When you click on a class and on 'Students' you will get an overview of the students in that class. If you want to see the progress of one student, click on the student and on 'Student progress'. You will then see all the lessons that the student has followed and how far the student has progressed with each lesson. If you want to see the extensive reporting click on the lesson and then on 'Reports'.

In this course you will learn more about differentiation: why should you use differentiation within your lesson, how do you do it in your LessonUp lesson and what does this look like for your students.
what is it and why should i do it in my lesson?
Differentiation in education means adapting your lessons to students' individual needs. This includes tailoring the content and the way you deliver it so that each student learns in a way that suits them.It doesn't mean you have to create a separate lesson for each student, but you can divide your existing lesson into different levels. It ensures that each student is challenged. This is important because every student has a different background and thus different needs.
Offering differentiation in your lessons is difficult. It is not one mouse click after which all of the lesson material is offered differentiated. The role of the teacher in this is essential. This is also the idea behind the differentiation in LessonUp.You can differentiate by using different learning methods. In addition, you can use the differentiation button in LessonUp. This doesn't automatically differentiate your entire lesson, but you can use it to show students which part of the lesson they need to focus on.
student view
Once you share the lesson with your students they will see the lesson on lessonup.app as shown here. For each slide, they see what color code goes with it.
