How Can We Help?

4. Unlocking units for your class

You are here:
< All Topics

You can control the pace that your students access new content by unlocking units as necessary. When your students first log in, there will be one unit that is initially unlocked. Our recommendation is that you do one unit per week with your class. However, if your class is doing a Starter course, then until they get to the last 7 units you should unlock multiple units as they’ll find the earlier units relatively easy.

Note: We have consistently found that if you unlock all the units at once. Some of the more enthusiastic students will rush through the content at home before you get to it in class!

Finding the unlock units page

  1. Log in at
  2. Go to the Classes section.
