How do I use Course Pacing?

If enabled by your institution, you can use Course Pacing to define a pace in which students much complete course tasks. This allows students with different start dates to have the same time frame in which they must complete course tasks..

Notes:

  • The Course Pacing feature preview is in active development. To provide direct feedback about this feature, please post in the Course Pacing user group.
  • Course Pacing must be enabled in the course settings.
  • If the Course Pacing feature preview is not available in your course, the feature has not been enabled by your institution.
