Lessons guide
How to start a lesson
To start a lesson, go to the Learn section (if you are not in it) and select Lessons at the top of the screen.
The lecture can be started immediately using the Start a lesson button, or it can be scheduled for a specific time and date - this is done using the Schedule a lesson button.
You can give lectures only for students - such lessons are not visible to anyone except invited students. You can also create открытую лекцию for everyone - this lesson will be visible to all users of the portal. Participation in an open lesson can be made paid - the trainer will receive 50% from the payment made.
For testing, we recommend using test students.
Начните тест, используя кнопку Start a lesson. Перед стартом лекции, вы можете выбрать, для каких учеников будет доступна лекция, таких учеников нужно отметить галочками. Затем нажмите кнопку Start.
Lesson screen
After the lesson starts, you will see the following:
Let's take a closer look at the important controls.
1. Настройка аудио/ видео
Прежде всего обратите внимание на самую верхнюю область синего цвета. С ее помощью настраивается аудио и видеосвязь между участниками.
  • Option "With camera/screen" is intended for lecturers, this mode will allow you to show lecture participants video from your camera, as well as share your computer screen, for instance to show pre-prepared training materials in other software.

    Video can be useful when working with children, it can help keep attention of the students. However, the video screen will be quite small and you should not expect anything grandiose from this option.
    Функция screen sharing может быть полезной, если у вас есть свои материалы в сторонних программах и форматах, которые вы хотите использовать для проведения занятий. Опция демонстрации экрана возможна только если на устройстве есть видеокамера, пока это такое техническое ограничение. При этом можно и не включать видеокамеру, а пользоваться только демонстрацией экрана, но камера все равно должна у вас быть.

  • The "Spectator Only" option is fine for students and also for you if you don't plan on using the video camera or screen sharing.

    Мы рекомендуем ученикам использовать опцию "Spectator Only", поскольку видеосвязь увеличивает нагрузку на устройства, и может вызывать “тормоза” у учеников, подключившихся со слабых телефонов или планшетов.

After you select one of the options, the browser will ask you for additional permission to use the microphone and video camera (in case you select "With camera/screen") - you need to grant such permissions. In case you want to replace one option with another, or if you have problems with sound or video, you can refresh the browser page with the F5 button or using the refresh page icon in the top line of the browser and issue all permissions.
2. Finish the lesson
With this button, you can end the lesson for all participants. Please note that you will not be able to restart that lesson again, only create a new one.
3. Панель инструментов
This is the board's control panel. The top three buttons allow you to set the position manually or upload the base in PGN format. The Headers button allows you to enter or view batch metadata from the PGN. Нижние 4 кнопки позволяют:
  • Hide: скрывает для слушателей все ходы после текущего. Может быть полезно, если вы загрузили партию в формате PGN и хотите обсудить какие-то моменты, не раскрывая, какие ходы были сыграны далее.
  • Blank move: передает ход другой стороне. Полезно для рассмотрения примеров, в которых расклад полностью меняется в зависимости от того, чей сейчас ход.
  • + Комментарии: Inserts/edits text comments for the current move.
  • + Маркеры: Inserts/edits markers for the current move. You can also place and remove markers with the right mouse button - see section "Chessboard" below.
4. Панель коммуникации
Here are buttons for managing interaction with participants.

You also need to set the correct move that the participants will need to find, and you can change the number of points awarded for the correct answer and the time for solving. When everything is set, run the test by clicking on the orange button with a check mark.
  • Оставшиеся кнопки управляют звуком и видео с вашей стороны. , в этом же порядке: Начать демонстрацию экрана; Включить/выключить камеру; Включить/выключить микрофон; Включить/выключить звук.
