Oncore Tips: How to Modify Classrooms in Oncore


Someone recently called Oncore the “Swiss-Army Knife” of classroom management.

Swiss army knives often have seemingly random tools that have functionality, but nobody knows why they are there. So it goes with Oncore. One of the hidden gems in Oncore is modification. And you can modify just about anything once you know how to use the modification slide feature. It makes Oncore even more awesome than you thought. So, here’s a list of Oncore’s modification features.

Modifications Within Your Classrooms

You’ll see the same modification interface and icons in several places:

In the student list feature you can modify or delete any student. The modification feature is especially great for students who have nicknames.

Moving to the seating chart feature, you’ll find that the feature opens an important seating chart editing window.  This feature allows you to modify the number of available seats in rows and columns in the classroom. This is very helpful.
