leave a comment »

The Tasks tool is a great asset when working on large course projects. You can use the tasks tool to organize projects/activities by defining task priority and tracking its status. As an instructor you can keep student’s on-track by prioritizing activities and monitoring their progress. The Task tool can also be use by the student to organize and prioritize their activities in a single course or in all their courses.

There are two types of Task, Course task and Personal task. A Course task is created by the instructor and can be used to monitor the students’ progress. Personal task are created by students and cannot be viewed by anyone except the creator.
