Where's the beef? (I mean Classroom Content)

I am a premium member and my membership is still valid. However, I don't see a classroom content section on my page anymore. Did I miss something? Is it not available anymore? Is this temporary? Or is this a glitch?

Please help!

Hi Melissa,

We had a small glitch that hid the Class Content for some users.

Please access your class settings by clicking the small gear icon in the bottom left of the game, then go into the "Interface" section under "Advanced." You'll need to check the box next to "Activate Legacy Interactive Classroom Content." If you have multiple classes, you'll need to repeat the operation each time.

However, the Class Content will be removed at the end of the 2017-2018 school year as it has been replaced by Quests.

Let me know if you have further questions!

Thank you for your help. Next question: Why is this being discontinued after the end of this school year? I hope we'll have something similar to replace it.

Hi Melissa,

The new Quests are very similar to Class Content, only more sophisticated. Just like in the Class Content, in Quests you can create a post (a task), add an assignment for students to complete, enable comments to foster discussion, and give rewards for completing the objective. Teachers can also link their objectives together and create differentiated learning paths to meet their students’ needs. Moreover, different types of objectives will eventually be added to make the experience even more immersive.

Can you link Google Classroom assignments with Quests? I'm assuming that Quests are replacing the Class Content feature?

Hi Ryan,

You're correct in assuming that Quests are replacing the Class Content. You can read more here on how to turn Google Classroom assignments into lesson objectives in Quests.

Let me know if you have further questions!
