Elements of a Session in the Session Library
In the following, the individual elements of a created Session in the Session Library are explained using the grid view. The list view also contains the same elements of a Session.
1. Name of Session
Each session has its own name, with which you can recognize it unambiguously. We recommend the following points when naming sessions:

- The length of the name should not exceed 37 characters.
- Choose a unique name that will give information about the content and/or the group work.
