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 their phone’s mobile data service home wi-fi to access the internet.
During School hours

-

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

-

Linewize Connect is software that 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 at all.
