DescriptionIn Canvas, the word ‘groups’ is used throughout the platform to mean different things. The “Groupies Series" is designed to clarify these nuances in hopes that you become a ‘fan’ of groups in Canvas.
In this session, we look at assignments for groups (a.k.a. differentiated assignments).
Have you ever wanted to give one assignment to one group of students and another to a different group (without confusing students by having both assignments be visible)? Have you ever wanted to extend a deadline of one assignment to one group of students, but not the entire class? This session demonstrates ways to leverage differentiated assignments to customize course assignments in a way that keeps your gradebook clean and the students on track.
Participants who attend the session will learn to...
- Define differentiated assignments
- List the steps for using differentiated assignments
- Share use-cases that best leverage differentiated assignments
