What are checklists?

Checklist is a great tool to highlight important or required activities in your course and help students stay organized with what’s expected of them in your class.

Instructors can create an overview of activities for the semester.

Students can use the checklist as a reminder, track their completion of work, and check off items when completed.

"Checklists" can be found in the navigation menu, under Assessments.
