Coupled lessons

In Untis terminology, coupled lessons (or couplings) are those in which more than one teacher and/or more than one class participate in the lessons, and the lessons in the coupling are held at the same time.

 

Coupled lessons (several classes)

Teacher Rubens is to teach cookery in the home economics room to the combined students of classes 1a and 1b for 2 periods per week.

Proceed as in the example of the simple lesson, but enter both classes 1a and 1b in the field 'Class(es)' separated by a comma. In this case, the room will not be entered automatically because there is no room assigned to the subject cookery. For this reason, enter it in the subject room column .

Now switch to class 1b. You can see that the newly created lesson also appears in the list of lessons of class 1b.

 

Couplings with several classes and teachers

We will now plan 4 periods of English in different sets for the students of the second year. This means that students from classes 2a and 2b will be taught in three sets by three teachers (Cer, Ander and Callas) in three different rooms.

The '+' sign will now be permanently displayed in the 'Cl,Te' column. Clicking on this sign will display all the information on the lesson. You can decide whether you wish to view only the first row of the lesson or whether all coupling rows should be displayed.

 

 

Tip: Expanding all coupling rows

Clicking on <+> in the column heading of 'Cl,Te' will expand or collapse all coupling rows in one go.

 

 

 

 

Tip: You should remember the following rule when entering coupled lessons:

Several classes are entered together separated by commas but when there are several teachers each one must be entered in a separate coupling row.
