FAQ

  • Why is the Assign button gray/inactive? You may not have added activities to the lesson yet. A lesson has to have at least one activity to be assigned.
  • Can I assign the lesson for a later date? Yes. Toggle the Assign at a Later Date (Optional) to the ON position, then select a start date from the dropdown menu. Check out this article for more information.
  • If the due date passes, can the students still complete the lesson? Yes. The due date does not lock or disable the lesson in any way.
  • If I make edits to a lesson, do I have to assign the lesson again? No, any updates you make to a lesson will automatically update for the students. There is no need to reassign.
  • What happens if I assign a lesson multiple times? Students will see multiple instances of that lesson in their Lessons module. The preceding note about making edits to a lesson will apply to all assigned instances of that lesson.
  • How do I see the student progress of a lesson? Click HERE for more information on viewing lesson progress.
  • If I require that the students complete the lesson activities in order, what does that look like on the student's side? The activities will appear inactive and will have a padlock symbol on them until the student marks the previous activity as complete. See below for an example:
