When the due date passes, students can no longer edit their work, and solutions are revealed for incomplete items.

Set Due Dates Via the Activity Editor

  1. From the main course page, click on the assignment name to open the activity editor.
  2. In the Settings panel, click the Edit Settings icon.
  3. Click the checkbox under Due Date.
  4. Set a date, hour, and minute for the assignment to be due. You can type in a date, or choose a date by clicking the calendar.
  5. Click the Save button  to set the due date. If any of your students have already worked on the activity, there will be a slight delay as their due dates are updated.

Set Due Dates Via the Activities and Due Dates Page

  1. From the main course page, click Activities and Due Dates at the top left.
  2. For the desired activity, click the checkbox in the Due Date column.
  3. Set a date, hour, and minute for the assignment to be due. You can type in a date, or choose a date by clicking the calendar.
  4. Your changes will automatically be saved.

You may also select multiple activities using the checkboxes at the far left, then click Edit selected activities. This will allow you to set the same due date for several activities at once.

Available From Dates

An available from date is the (optional) date and time when your students can begin answering the questions in the activity. The available from checkbox is found next to the due date checkbox and functions in the same manner. If you leave the available from date blank, students can begin working on the assignment as soon as you change the visibility from hide to show.

IMPORTANT: If you set an available from date, you must also show the activity. A hidden activity will remain hidden from students even after the available from date has passed. Therefore, we recommend that you either (1) set all your available from dates and show all the activities or (2) leave the available from dates blank, and just show each activity when you're ready for students to begin working on it.
