Instructor Working from the Assignments area

Community Member


I am the Distance Learning Coordinator for my site (so admin/instructional design/all-in-one/etc).   One of my faculty has decided to not use modules and just make all assignments via the Assignment area (which is restricted from student access) then have the student access the assignments from their Grades area so bypassing Modules.

Has anyone seen this before?   It it kind of unique but the only disadvantages that I can see so far are that you can't really organize the assignments and add extra pages plus I believe students can't really see other student's discussion items.  

I don't think the LMS is setup to be used this way but it does seem to work.    Our college does have a rule that assignments should be in Modules area but is there something that I am missing here or is this actually a valid approach.

Sincerely yours,

Joe Struss
