Sending, queueing, and focusing activities

Key points:

  • Sending, queueing, and focusing activities can be done in Connected mode only. 
  • Students won’t actually see any Activity slides until you begin sending or queueing them. 
  • Activities must be sent or queued one by one; there is no way to ‘batch’ send all activities in an active lesson. (Note: Activities can be batch sent as part of assignments.) 

So, your students have now all enrolled into your class? Great! Let’s start sending some Activity slides! 

The ‘Send’ button

Clicking this button will mean that the Activity slide in question will immediately be visible to all students, and it will take over their screens.

This button is primarily used for: 

  1. Sending the first Activity slide of the lesson
  2. Moving students onto the next activity 

The Send button is available in both the Lesson overview and the Activity view.

The ‘Queue’ button

Clicking this button will mean that the Activity slide in question will immediately be available to all students when they’re ready, however it will not take over their screens. 

This allows you to line up as many activities as desired, without interrupting the student experience. 

This button is primarily used for: 

  1. Freeing the teacher up to focus on something else if need be 
  2. Allowing students to work through Activity slides at their own pace

The Queue button is available in both the Lesson overview and the Activity view.

The ‘Focus’ button

Only previously sent or queued items can be focused. Clicking this button will mean that the Activity slide in question will immediately be visible to all students, and will take over their screens.

This button is primarily used for:
1. Regrouping the entire class onto a particular Activity slide

The Focus button is available in both the Lesson overview and the Activity view.
