Classwize Feature Availability for Teachers

This article is intended for teaches.

Some Classwize features for teachers are not currently available at every school. The features available at your school depend on:

  • how your school has configured Classwize

  • what types of devices your students use

  • if Linewize Connect for Windows or Mac, or Connect Chrome extension has been installed on your students’ devices 

This guide outlines which Classwize features are available to teachers when: 

  • Students are On-Network during School Hours 

  • Students are Off-Network during School Hours

Definitions

On-Network

The device is connected to your school’s network and Internet connection.

Off-Network 

The device is connected to the Internet through a network that your school doesn’t run. For example, the student may be at home or using their phone’s mobile data service to access the Internet.

During School hours

The period of the day when students are normally at school. 

Note: Your school can configure school hours on Configuration > Objects > Time Periods and enable it on the Classwize Configuration page. 

No Connect for Education App

Linewize Connect is software your school may use on your students’ devices to enable advanced Classwize features. Some features are only available when Connect is installed on a student’s Chrome device, while others are available even if the device doesn’t have Connect on it.
