I am new to Canvas and I am trying to figure out the best place to put an assignment. Here is my dilemma:
I give my students a term paper assignment every semester. I provide the details of the assignment in early October, but the first rough draft isn't due until early November and my final draft is due at the end of November. I am trying to figure out if I should put the actual "assignment" (the one the students click on to submit to Turnitin.com) into the module when I give the details on the assignment or in the module they are working on when the assignment is actually due.
- Class is working in Module 5 when the assignment is given.
- Class is working in Module 10 when the rough draft is due
- Class is working on Module 13 when the Final Draft is due.
Should I place the assignments in Module 5 where all the instructions are located, or place them in Module 10 & 13 respectively?
Any suggestions, feedback or prior experiences are greatly appreciated.
