Reordering and Grouping Classes
Last Updated: Jan 28, 2019 12:13PM EST

This article applies to:  Echo360 Instructors

By default, classes in the Class List are listed by date and time, with the oldest class appearing at the top and classes without dates appearing at the bottom of the class list.

Instructors can change the order of their class list to:

  • Sort the classes in chronological order, either with the newest class first or the oldest class first.
  • Move classes to reflect the order in which you want students to view the materials.
  • Move classes into groups to provide a logical set of similar topics.

Sorting by "oldest" moves all non-dated classes and groups to the top of the list. Sorting by "newest" moves non-dated classes and groups to the bottom of the list. If necessary you can edit the details of a class or group to change or remove the date/time, and/or change the name of the item.

The changes you make to the class list order is the Default order shown to students. Students can temporarily sort their view of the class list chronologically (oldest/newest), but the Instructor's set order for classes is what appears by default and on refresh for students.

To change the order of the class list

  1. Log into Echo360 and find the section whose classes you want to change.
  2. Click the course title to open the section Class List page.
  3. Above the class list on the left, click REORDER.
    This opens an edit mode for the class list.

  4. To sort the class list chronologically, click one of the Sort By options.
    When sorting by Oldest first, all classes or groups with no date/time appear at the top of the list, as shown in the below figure.

  5. To manually move items to different locations, click and drag any class or group in the list to its new location. Use the arrow button to the left of a group to expand the group and move classes from within the group.

  6. To move a class into a group, drag a class to the group row and release it.
  7. To move a class OUT of a group, drag the class out of the group and release it.
  8. ALTERNATELY, use the up and down arrows that appear on the right side of the class/group rows to move the item up and down in the list.
  9. Repeat any of these steps as necessary.
  10. When finished, click SAVE.

Students coming to the class list page will now see the classes in their new order. They still have the option to temporarily sort their view by newest or oldest class, but on refresh and by default all students (and other instructors) see the order you set.
