Hello,

I found the forum below that shows a similar problem.  It's a bit dated but may still be relevant.

https://community.oracle.com/message/3575103

On the Enterprise Manager login, was there an option to connect as SYSDBA?  According to the forum above, you cannot shutdown the database unless you are connected as SYSDBA.

As this is for a class, I suggest you have a look at the Oracle supplied pre-built VM's - they contain a database, developer tools, EM etc. You just have to install Oracle Virtual Box and get the VM you need:

I can recommend the first one, Database App Development VM

I don't agree with the way you want to close this question: you accept my comment as a solution and then say you found some other solution, without referring to it or sharing any details. This question is answered and should not be removed.
