  2. Pick the class you want to manage (from the classes drop-down menu)
  3. Open the Options menu on the right side of the top tool bar

2. Assigning Courses and Controlling the Way Students Unlock Packs

In order to change the course assigned to a class and/or change how missions and packs unlock:

  1. Open the class options menu (see above)
  2. Choose "Course settings"
  3. Choose a course to assign from the drop down
  4. Choose how packs unlock:
    • All packs open - means all packs are unlocked and available for the students with all their missions
    • Pack by pack - means students need to complete all missions of a specific pack to unlock the next pack. It will unlock automatically. 
    • Set by Set - means missions within each pack open by predetermined sets of 1-3 missions.
    • Manual - lets you manually choose which packs to lock or unlock. Students will only have access to packs you check.
  5. Click "Save"

If a new course is assigned, all students of that class will no longer have access to the course previously assigned to them.
