The default selection is ‘My Notes’.

Add a lesson title and notes if you wish.

You can also add homework assignments.

Tap ‘back’ when you’ve finished your lesson review to return to the timetable screen. You can edit the review later if you wish.

Adding New ‘one-off’ Items to Your Timetable

Tap the ’+’ button in the top right of the timetable to add a new ‘one –off’ event to your timetable, or to set yourself a Task.

Help Image Shadow

A Task does not appear in your timetable, but is a reminder and will appear in your to-do list.

Specify a subject (optional).

Add a title and notes for the Task.

Set the deadline (due date).

Set the reminder period (Akademia will remind you in advance of the due date if you want).

Set the repeat frequency

A new ‘one–off’, ad-hoc event can be a Lesson, Study period, Exam or Other Appointment. These will overwrite what’s in your timetable and allow you to make an alteration if an unforeseen event occurs, without changing your whole timetable.

For any of these you must add a Title, date, start and end time. Optional entries include location and repeat frequency.

For lessons you must add a subject, and may add a teacher.

For study periods, you must either choose from the list of your Subjects or choose No Subject for a general Study period.

Tap ‘Save’ when finished, and the ‘one –off’ event will show in the timetable. You can tap to edit it. If it is a ‘one–off’ lesson you will also be able to add a lesson review and add assignments as with normal lessons.
