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 to classes 1a and 1b for two periods in the home economics room.
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 will see that the lesson is automatically displayed for this class.
Coupled lessons (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 in classes 2a and 2b will be taught in three sets by three teachers (Cer, Ander, Callas) in three different rooms.
1.Switch the lessons window to class 2a.
2.Enter '4' in the 'Per' column and confirm this by pressing the <TAB> key.
3.Enter the (short) name 'Cer' and confirm again with <TAB>. It does not matter which of the three teachers you begin with.
4.Enter 'EN' for subject.
5.Now enter classes 2a and 2b in the 'Class(es)' column separated by a comma.
6.Class 2a's home room – R2a – will be entered automatically.
7.Move the mouse to the column 'Cl,Te' in the lesson you have just entered and click on '+'. Enter the name of the next teacher ,'Ander', and again classes 2a and 2b in the empty row shaded grey.
8.Now change the room from R2a to room R2b since teacher Cervantes will be teaching his group in room R2a .
9.Make the same entries for teacher Callas in the third coupling row, making sure to enter a different room.
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.
It sometimes happens that for one lesson (or one coupling row), two or more rooms are needed.
you can enter the rooms in one field and separate them by a comma - similar to the classes.
The example below shows that for the music lesson with Maestra Callas the room MZ, as well as the room R2a is needed.
