Assignment Checklists

One way to help you manage your time and course-work is to use Assignment Checklists. You can record each discussion, assignment, quiz, and due date for the duration of your course. This will help you visualize all of your upcoming tasks for the course. Additionally, as you complete each task, you can mark it as complete!

We have developed these two Assignment Template PDFs for your use. Download the template and simply fill in the content you need. We have provided an examples for the Week 1 spaces, including reading materials, discussions, and assignments. Simply replace this content with your specific course need, and you have a PDF checklist ready to go!
