Removing Access to a Student

Unfortunately, you cannot remove a student once you have given them access to a course as this is a digital licence.

Please ensure that you have the right student details prior to issuing a course to reduce the need to remove a student from the course.

If you require a student to be blocked, please inform us at admin@syzygal.com

 

 

Licence Management

How long are web-book licences valid for?

Once a licence has been issued to a student, the access to the web-book will be for 90 calendar days only. Please ensure that when issuing the courseware, ensure that the course will take place within the next 30 days.

Tip: to maximise the time a student has access to the courseware, issue the web-book closer to the course start date.

How can I order more licences

Additional licences can be purchased through the courseware store.

If you would like the licences to be added to a particular group session, please send an email to admin@syzygal.com stating, the order number and which group you would like these licences to be added to.

Can I give the student extra time

Unfortunately, you cannot give your students any extra time as the web-book licence is valid for 30 days only.

It would be possible however to issue a fresh licence to the student when their existing licence has elapsed.
