To change the duration of a single lesson in a regularly scheduled course whose duration includes a predetermined number of hours, there are two ways:
- from the general calendar, right-click on the lesson box and following "Edit lesson properties". Validate the last checkbox and enter the new lesson duration.
Click the button Edit lesson properties to conclude the operation.In case you shorten the lesson, for example from 60 min to 30 min, you will be able to reallocate that half hour again from the general calendar by clicking the "+" In the upper right corner of the screen.
Then from the new search menu, select the course for which the lesson was shortened and click the Schedule flexible hours.
The system highlights how many hours are still left to allocate for this course (in the example image, having shortened a lesson by 30 min, there are 0.5 hours left to allocate).
Then enter the required information to schedule the lesson and click the button Confirmation planning.
N.B. In case the lesson is lengthened instead, the added minutes will be deducted from the last lesson.
- The other method of changing the lesson duration is used directly in the attendance entry phase (when perhaps the different lesson duration was not planned). Click the icon Class agenda on the relevant course row and, from the next screen, click the icon Insert presence on the line of the lesson for which you intend to change the actual duration.
Then enter the attendance and the actual minutes of the lecture; then click the Update attendance To save the operation.
In case the duration has been shortened, use the same method explained in the previous point to reschedule that part of the lesson that was cut.
In case the lesson is lengthened instead, the added minutes will be deducted from the last lesson.
IMPORTANT: By changing the length of the lesson, the teacher's salary will also be changed.
For courses whose duration includes a predetermined number of lessons, on the other hand, it will be possible to change the lesson duration in the same way, but it will not be possible to reschedule the cut-off parts of lessons, nor will the last lesson be shortened by lengthening one.
