Blog & Website

With the virtual class, teachers can run their own blog and create their own class or school website, which has several advantages:
You can work on your blog and your websites anytime, anywhere, you just need access to a computer / laptop, a tablet or a smartphone.
Since all content is stored in the cloud, you no longer have to worry about which device you want to save it to, and you can no longer lose content or files.
You can easily switch between different computers or devices while you are working on your blog or website, and your content is automatically backed up.
All content can be edited directly online - you do not need any programming knowledge, you do not need any special software for creating websites, and you do not have to "upload" your pages to the server.

Options

The "Blog & Website" web app enables content to be published in three stages:
You can run a class blog, e.g. about the activities of your class. Your students can then read the class blog by clicking on the "Blog & Website" web app.
You can create your own class website into which your blog will then be automatically inserted. Your class website is online within a few minutes and can e.g. View your blog, tasks, photos, documents, timetables, calendars, contact information and other content.
You can also complete websites for your classes, your school or e.g. create individual projects. You can then design these websites completely freely, and it can also be used to implement very complex website projects.
Contents of your virtual class released for publication can be automatically published on the class as well as on the school website. This can include your class blog, texts and projects from students, as well as public photos and documents from your file management.
This way you can run a constantly lively class or school website without ever having to put any content on this website - as soon as teachers or students produce content, your website will update itself!

Enable

If you have never used this web, your blog and / or your class website may not be activated.
Follow the on-screen instructions to activate your blog and / or class website. If your blog is not active, you can also activate it manually under "Settings" in the "Blog & Web" app.

class blog

Your class blog is like an online diary with which you as a teacher can document the activities of your class and publish them if you wish.
You can write texts, you can add photos, documents or videos to each text.
Your entries are automatically sorted by date - the most recent entries are always at the top, older posts slide down and are also shown on additional pages if necessary.
It's easy to write a new post:
Open the "Blog & Web" web app, and then click the "Post New" button.
Enter a heading and write your text, then click on "save".
You can already upload photos and documents at this step, but we recommend doing this in a further step.
Your blog entry is not published immediately, which is why it is now yellow displayed.
Other users will only be able to see your entry after you have published it:
Click on the yellow pencil button to edit your existing blog entry.
Set the status of your entry to "published" in the top left.
Enter a date and decide whether your entry should be published on the school website, on the class website or on both.
Read over your text, press the "save" button and close your entry.
Now your blog entry is online, your class members and your website visitor can see it (if you have published a website).
You can also add photos and documents to your listing, there are basically 3 options - you can upload your documents before, during or after you write your listing.
In most situations it is advantageous to opt for option 3, ie only upload documents later.
1. Upload your documents before you write your blog entry:
Go to your file management (documents & media) and select the area "Website / Public". Here you can e.g. also select the "Blog" folder.
Create a folder for a document and then upload it to that folder.
Just go to the "Blog & Web" app and create and create your blog entry.
Edit your blog entry, go to "Files" and then choose "add / upload".
Select "Select existing directory" and look for the folder that you initially created.
2. Upload your documents while you are writing your blog entry:
Just go to the "Blog & Web" app and create and create your blog entry.
Even before you save your entry, you can click on the "File" icon above and upload files. These are then loaded into your "pipeline" and automatically added to the entry.
3. Upload your documents after you write your blog entry:
Write your blog entry, save it and then click on the "edit" icon.
Now go to "Files" before you publish the entry.
click on "add / upload" and then on "upload".
Choose your main directory, and if possible you should also create a subdirectory.
Click Next, and then upload your files. If your subdirectory does not exist, it will be created automatically.
Ideally, you save the main directory for your blog documents as a favorite in the file manager, as favorites are always shown here immediately when uploaded.
Incidentally, you have several options when selecting documents in the blog:
Upload: Upload new documents, usually to a new subdirectory.
Add existing directory: Select a folder from your file manager.
Add individual files: Select individual documents from your file manager.
Embed video: Link a video from other platforms (YouTube, Vimeo).
Add text: Display text from the text editor of the virtual class.
In the "Blog & Web" app you can also make the basic settings for your blog under "Settings", among other things you can upload documents ...
specify a default directory for your file manager,
Activate / deactivate favorites and
Specify a standard option for creating subdirectories.

My class online / class homepage

With oli.lu you can easily create your own class website that is generated almost entirely by the platform, based on the content and settings of your virtual class.
Click on the "Blog & Web" web app, and then click on "Settings" at the top. Here you can activate and configure your class website.
At the top you can first enter your school website if your school should have one.
If your virtual class is a member of a virtual school, an administrator of this school can also enter the website in the "School" web app, the website will then be automatically displayed in all virtual classes.
Then you will see the address (subdomain) of your class website. You can choose this address freely and it will be active as soon as you save it.
You cannot choose an address / subdomain that is already used by another class on the oli.lu platform. If the address already exists, please choose another name.
Now you can make the settings of your website:
You can take your class website online or offline at any time.
You can decide which pages should be online:
Blog: Your class blog as described above.
Info: An area with freely createable content.
Tasks: Online exercises that you created with the platform's e-learning apps.
Photos: Photos that are stored in a separate area of ​​your file management.
Texts: Student texts created with the text editor of the virtual class.
Documents: Documents that are stored in a separate area of ​​your file management.
Calendar: The calendar of your class, with important dates.
Timetable: Your timetable as you entered it in the class register.
Word of the day: Your word of the day, as you entered it in the class register.
Contact: Contact information for your class.
You can easily manage the content of your class website:
Your blog on the website will be updated as soon as you make changes in the class blog.
The info area is a wiki, so pages that you can update without programming knowledge.
Tasks, timetables and words of the day are automatically taken from the class book.
You can upload, change and delete photos and documents on your class website by simply making the changes in the appropriate directories in your file manager.
Texts are automatically published on the class website if you mark them as "published" in the text editor of the virtual class.
You can easily edit and save contact data.
Finally there are a few more setting options:
You can switch the sidebar with the list of students on or off.
You can protect your site with a password, either for all members of the platform or only for members of your class.
Password protection only applies to the pages of the website, not to documents. You may have to save these in the protected area ("Documents") of the file management.
You can also have your class website redirected to a completely different website (e.g. the page of your class on a separate school website).

Read-only class for administrative purposes

Sometimes it makes sense to set up a virtual class for posting messages for all students on the school website, where ...
on the one hand, all students of the school should be registered in the class (so that the news get into their news feed),
the students should not really use the virtual class themselves,
should only be able to read the blog.
This rather complex problem can be solved very easily by setting the type of the class to "Project - Students can only read" in the main settings of the virtual class. No further settings are then necessary.

school website

Not only can you run a class blog or class website, you can also create really professional and complex school websites with oli.lu.
You can create a complex and dynamic school website for your school, on which a lot of content can be automatically taken from the respective virtual classes.
If your school consists of several parts (e.g. several separate buildings within a city or municipality), it is of course also possible to create several separate websites.
You can not only create websites for individual schools and buildings, but e.g. also for specific school projects.
If there are several websites, you can also create a portal website, and information from the different school websites can be automatically merged on the portal website.
You can find detailed information on building complex school websites on the separate website help pages (see the tabs at the top).

Notice

Once you create a class blog, class website, or school website, you may also share information about your school, class, and maybe even your students.
As a teacher and / or as the creator of a website on oli.lu you are obliged to abide by local, regional, national and international guidelines and laws.
Before you create websites as part of your teaching activity, you should always first discuss this with your supervisor (if available).
Please read all pages on security, privacy and data protection on oli.lu before you start building a website.
