Q. I need assistance in setting up a way to alert students when they have an assignment due.
A. If you are using the Assignment Tool to set up your assignments, you only need to enable the To Do module on your course’s homepage (you can read more about the Home Page at Customizing Course Home Page ) . Once you add a due date to your assignment, it should show up for students in the To Do module in the What’s Due box; they should see the number of assignments set up under one of the headings – Today, Tomorrow, This Week, or Future – depending on when it is due. Students will see the dates assignments are due, however the instructor will not see the due dates in the What’s Due module.
