With BenchPrep's Live Class functionality, you can invite your learners to a live class lead by your instructors on the platform of your choice!

 

An individual live class can be scoped either to a course or a particular group, and instructors can create either a single live class or bulk upload multiple live classes. In addition, classes can be “archived,” which allow them to be visible to learners after the event has passed. Admins have the ability to embed video and notes within the live class instance for learners to view before and/or after the class.

 

In this article, we will go over creating a live class and bulk uploading multiple classes. For information regarding Zoom Integration, head to our Knowledge Base section here.
