Putting a marker on what you would be working on that day

0 Kudos

As a student, I find it confusing when I open up my assignments and it shows all of them, even the ones from last quarter. I think we should have a bookmark on the week we're working on, as well as a little star or something marking the bits we would be working on that day. That way you wouldn't get lost and confused looking through past assignments or trying to find the assignment you're supposed to be working on that day.

I agree with you that the Assignments list is long and confusing. I'm an instructor, and I've set up my Canvas courses in such a way that students don't see "Assignments" in their course navigation bar. 

Instead, I've set up weekly Modules for my students to complete. My weekly Modules contain all of the Pages, Assignments, and Quizzes for that week. Hopefully, your professor has also set up your course that way. Look for the word "Modules" in the Course Navigation Bar. 

Another thing you can do is click on your Calendar. If your Assignments have due dates, they will show up in your Calendar. Once you have submitted each Assignment, you'll see a line drawn through it. That will help you keep track of your work.

I hope that these suggestions help you. Good luck!
