If you use AES year after year, we made it easy to get ready for your next semester.

The first thing you’ll need to address before you start the new school year is setting up your new classes. There are few ways you can do this, depending on your situation.

In this article, you will learn how to set up your class period based on your situation.

You’ll review the use case for each of the following class options:


Create Classes

As a returning teacher, you’ll only need to create a brand new class if you want to start fresh or are teaching a course that you did not teach with AES previously. Otherwise, you will reset or copy your classes.

You can create any new classes with the New Class button at the top right of your page after logging in.

If you want a full walk-through, here’s how to Create a Class.

Copy Classes

When you have a class set up already, but you're teaching multiple class periods of the same course, you can save time by making a copy rather than create the same class from scratch for each class period of students.

Copying a class creates an exact duplicate of all the learning modules and settings you put together in the class. This has a new, unique enrollment code for each copy you make. 

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to Copy a Class.

Reset Classes

If you're teaching the same class as the last semester, you can reset your existing class to save you time from starting all over.

Resetting a class archives it and all the student data in it. You'll get a duplicate class with the same assignments and settings but with no students enrolled. 

Here's how to Reset a Class

Delete Classes

Deleting a class keeps your My Classes tab up to date with active classes. If you are no longer teaching a class or need it to copy or reset, it’s best to delete it from your My Classes tab.

The deleted class moves to your account’s deleted items, where it is inaccessible to you and students. Don’t worry - if you need to reference a deleted class, you can restore it to access student data and grades.

Now that your class list is updated for the new year,  you are ready to enroll your next group of students.  Click the button below to learn more!
