Classwize Feature Availability for Teachers

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 the Linewize Connect app (or Connect Chrome extension) has been installed on your students’ devices 

This article 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 isn’t run by your school. For example, the student may be at home or using a phone’s mobile data service to access the internet.
During School hours

-

The period of the day when students are normally at school.
No Connect for Education App

-

Your school may have to install the Linewize Connect software on your students’ devices. This software is required to enable most of Classwize’s advanced features, but some features are available to you even if Connect isn’t installed.
