Lessons can be delivered either to a specific Class or as an Open Class (no specific class). When deciding which option to choose there are some important differences you should bear in mind.

The Open Class feature provides a quick way to connect student devices for unprepared lessons, Instant Whiteboard sessions, and when connecting student devices through ActivInspire.

Delivering a resource to a Class is preferable to an Open Class, as all the results will be saved. Any changes to a lesson made in Presenter and delivered to a Class do not affect the original lesson.
