The course unlocks over 22 days, and we recommend that you follow that schedule if possible. However, there may be circumstances in which it makes more sense to accelerate the course timeline (e.g. if you want students to finish before a school break starts) or extend the course timeline (e.g. if you want to use class time to complete the course, but don't meet with students everyday).
The best way to share the course on an accelerated timeline is by setting the start date for that class to be earlier than you actually expect to start the course. For example, you could “back-date” the start date to April 1st even though you were planning to start the course on May 1st. By doing this, all content would already be unlocked on May 1, allowing you to go at the accelerated pace of your choice. The easiest way for students to stay on track in this accelerated approach will be to ignore the “Up Next” algorithm on their student dashboard and instead access content directly from the lessons tab and Daily Beats tab. Even though they will see all content unlocked, they should start with the earliest content and progress forward (e.g. Daily Beat 1, Daily Beat 2, etc.).
To share the course on an extended timeline, there is nothing you need to change in your teacher dashboard. Our course does not close after 22-days, but remains open for as long as students need to complete it. The only thing to keep in mind is that your overall class progress and individual student progress will not accurately reflect students' course adherence. Progress is tracked by how many of the unlocked lessons and Daily Beats are completed and your students may not be completing lessons and Daily Beats as they unlock. Since content may be unlocking faster than your student plans to complete it, make sure they complete the earliest content and progress forward (e.g. Daily Beat 1, Daily Beat 2, etc.).
