Class Spaces

Class space settings will allow you to choose what students and family can see and do in their feeds.

Default settings:

  1. Students will see their own posts, their peers' posts and their teachers' posts.

  2. Students will not be able to react to or comment on each other's posts, or view other students' and teachers' comments on each other's posts.

  3. Family accounts will not be able to see content within the space until it is enabled by a teacher.

You can choose to enable the following optional settings for visibility of content for students in your class and their families:

  • Students' ability to react to each other's posts

  • Students' ability to view other students' comments on each other's posts

  • Students' ability to comment on each other's posts

  • Students' ability to view teacher comments on each other's posts

  • Family members' ability to view the Class Space

  • Family members' ability to react to and comment on their student's posts

What is the difference between Hidden, Visible and Active status?

  1. Hidden status - The space is hidden. Students and/or family members can't see or post to this space.

  2. Visible status - Students see the space, but can’t post or interact with other students' posts. Linked family members can only be given Visible access, with additional options to allow interacting with students' posts.

  3. Active status - Students can post to the space. Depending on the space type and specific access options you have selected, they may or may not be able to see and interact with other students' posts.
