    Currently, there are multiple locations that assignments can be created. If a course page is setup in modules, but an assignment is created through the Assignments or Discussions sections, they will not auto-populate into an existing or new Module. This has caused errors where faculty forget to take the second step of adding the assignment to the module, making the Modules page inaccurate for students and causing them to miss assignments or check multiple places to ensure they are up to date in their course.


    This idea proposes adding a field in Assignment Creation and Discussion Creation that would allow the creator to select which Module they would like to embed the assignment/discussion within. The field could be as basic as a drop-down list of module names, or as complex as the system currently available to move items between Modules (allowing the creator to determine which Module to send the item to and what position within the module they want it located in.)
