Writing a Post

Both teachers and students have access to writing a post. When writing a post, you can format the content such as making it bold, italic, adding links, and several other options available in the rich text editor.

You may also upload photos, videos, or files. Pasting a link will show up a preview of the site.

Managing Assignments

When an assignment with a deadline has been created, it will be automatically posted and pinned (bookmark icon) on the top of the course feed.

Students can submit their work through the post associated with the assignment. They can also view their submission and check the grade after the teacher has reviewed the assignment.
