In our system, all assignments, quizzes, and class activities are collectively called coursework .
A coursework can be assigned a due date, points, a rubric, and can be time-released. The time release feature allows faculty to set the date and time when the coursework title is released to students and/or date and time when the entire coursework content is released to students.
Coursework Properties Page
The coursework properties page allows you to create, edit, or inactivate coursework. You can also attach documents and a rubric, set grading criteria, assign it to classes, and set student access time frames. See full information at coursework properties.
