What’s the difference between Sanako Connect and Reactored, given that both are products that work online?
Sanako Connect emphasizes real-time teaching and teacher-led environment whereas Reactored is more fitting for self-paced learning, often more suitable for extra-curricular activities. Therefore, the two products complement each other and combining both would bring an interesting experience to users.
What is the meaning of ending a session?

As a teacher, however, you can still revisit an ended session’s content under the Sessions tab when logging into your account.

No, a session can only end when you choose End session deliberately, after which you cannot upload any other materials or create content inside the ended session, students also would not be able to do exercises and view content within the session.
If you keep the session on when closing the browser or turning off the computer, students can still access content there and submit exercises. You can revisit and edit the content inside the session later.
