Best Practices

  • Use clear descriptions of activity in the description field including:
    • How students will be graded including any grading guides and rubrics
    • Formatting rules
    • File types that will be accepted
    • Examples of exemplary submissions
  • Communicate dates in a way that is easy to maintain
    • Rarely use hard due dates (e.g. September 22, 2017) - opt for relative dates (e.g. Tuesday of Week 1) whenever possible
    • Use the year when typing hard due dates so that if it does not get updated, it will be clear that this is the wrong date.
    • When you would like to collect submissions at midnight, consider using 11:55pm instead. Students are often confused when something is due on Monday at midnight, but the system says that it is due on Tuesday at 12:00am.
