Hapara: Teacher Created Classes

The most requested feature for Hapara is now here!

Teachers may now create their own “ad-hoc” classes within Hapara, allowing for Hapara to be used outside of the regularly scheduled courses in Synergy. This feature will be especially useful for fluid grouping situations at elementary school, after school academic support sessions for secondary schools, or school sponsored clubs and groups.

How to Create a Class

  1. In the Manage Classes screen, select the Add Class button
  2. Enter a name for the Class, then click Create Class
  3. On the Class Info page for the new Class, choose Add New to add teachers or students to the class. Teachers need to be added by email address (@class.lps.org) individually, students can be added either individually or in a comma separated list of email addresses (@class.lps.org).
 
NOTICE:

I understand that use of this Hapara feature is permitted only if it is pertinent to my work assignment at Lincoln Public Schools.

 

What it Offers You

  • Hapara Teacher Dashboard will show a Documents tab containing all Google Drive work shared with the teacher, organized by student.
  • Hapara Highlights & Workspaces should behave as expected in a regularly (Synergy) scheduled course.

 

Helpful Things to Know

Add Students or Teachers
On the Class Info page for the new Class, alongside Learners (students) or Teachers, choose Add New. They are added by email address and can be added individually or in a list. To remove a learner, select them from the list and then click the Remove button.

Remove Students or Teachers
On the Class Info page for the new Class, select the Student or Teacher from the list and then click the Remove button.

Deactivating a class
Any teacher in a class can deactivate the class, which will remove it from Manage Classes.

End of the Year
When a complete archive is run by LPS at the end of a school year (July?), manually created classes will be archived.
