How do I schedule a class for a Facebook group?
Change platform:Computer Help
Only Facebook Pages can create paid classes.
Classes are a type of online event that you can create on Facebook, and you can schedule classes for your Facebook group. Who can see and join your class depends on the privacy setting of the group.
To schedule an online class:
- From your Feed, click Events in the left menu.
- Click Online, then Class.
- Choose how you want to broadcast your video:
- Facebook Live: Use to broadcast a one-way video that your guests can comment and react to.
- External Link: Use if your event is off of Facebook. Include anything that guests may need to know in the event description.
- Other: Make sure to include clear instructions on how to participate.
- Add the event details, then click Privacy.
- Click Group and select your group, then click Next.
- Add a description of the class and click Next.
- Enter any class requirements and click Next.
- If you want a cover photo, click Upload Cover Photo or Choose Illustration.
- If you want to invite all members of your group, select Invite all members of [group name].
- Click Create Event.
For example, the requirements can be something like equipment or minimum skill level.
Privacy for group classes and events is set by the group's privacy setting and can't be changed.
There are 2 privacy settings for groups:
- Public: Visible to anyone on or off Facebook. Anyone can see things like the event description, photos, posts and videos.
- Private: Visible only to members of the group. Group members can see the event description, photos, posts and videos.
Online Event Formats
You can live stream events, performances, gatherings and more on Facebook. Viewers can watch from a phone, computer or connected TV, and there isn't a limit on the number of viewers. Facebook Live videos are recorded and saved to the event page.
Shortly before your event starts, we’ll send you a reminder notification. Start your live video and people can watch from the event or their Feed. Co-hosts can request to join the broadcast, but only you can start it.
You can add a link to a third-party site or app where guests can watch the event. Because the event happens off Facebook, make sure to include anything the guests may need to know in the event description.
There is no video link or join button for this type of event, so make sure you explain how to participate in the event description. For example, a moment of silence at a specific time, or set time aside for a book club to read.
