Tasks

Instructors use the Tasks tool to organize projects or activities (referred to as tasks) by defining task priority and tracking task status. A user can create tasks and post them to the Tasks page. Each user can post personal tasks to their page. Instructors can post tasks to users participating in their courses, and administrators can post tasks to all users’ Tasks pages. Task information is arranged in columns that display the priority, task name, status, and due date.

Tasks are also available as a Course Group Tool for tasks that are specific to a smaller group within a course.
