How do I create an assignment?


After creating your class, you will be taken to the Overview page. The next step is to create an assignment.

Assignments help students focus on particular areas for learning. They only take a few minutes to set up, but they can keep your classes learning for hours!

Create an assignment

Step 1: If the automatic wizard does not pop up automatically, click the Assignment tab on the left bar.

Step 2: Click Create an Assignment.

You will see a list of courses you have chosen for this class.

  • To see the modules and topics in a course, click the course name.
