Want to see how you can view the progress of your students on lessons? Check out this article.
- 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.
