At WizIQ, classes and courses are two separate things. A class is a single event, while a course is a complete learning package. Think of a class as a brick and a course all of the bricks used to build a brick house.
See the chart below for more on the differences between classes and courses at WizIQ:
|Event||A single online class, attended live. If missed and the teacher offers this option, the student can catch up by watching the class recording.||A course might consist of multiple live class events, or may contain no events if it’s entirely self-paced.|
|Time||The length of the single class session, which might run up to a few hours.||The duration of a course depends widely on how many class sessions it contains, and how frequently they’re held. A course might continue for months.|
|Content||A class is a live interaction between students and teacher, conducted within the WizIQ Virtual Classroom.||A course is assembled using courseware. Courseware can contain live classes, shared content (Videos, PowerPoint presentations, Word documents, PDFs, etc.), evaluation exercises, and more. It is a complete package on a particular subject or topic.|
|Type||Synchronous unless watching the recording later for review.||Can be either synchronous classes or self-paced learning modules.|
