How do I create Clipboard Tasks?

Clipboard Tasks are the quickest way to provide trackable intervention and interaction

Tasks are personalized, non-graded activities that you can quickly assign using the Clipboard.

Tasks are more than “suggestions,” but less than “assignments." They're similar to in-class exercises, where students may or may not report on their experience afterward, but the real value is in “doing the task.” The Tasks feature takes those experiences further by allowing for easy personalization for individuals or groups and follow up on them later. 

From the homepage, click on the People icon under the title of a course.

From the People tab, click the Clipboard icon.

To create Tasks:

  1. Click on the Tasks tab of the Clipboard page
  2. Add the students, Quick Lists, and/or Groups to whom you want to give the Task using the panel on the left. You can either search for a student by typing their name, or create Quick Lists/Groups by clicking on those fields and adding students
  3. Provide a title and description
  4. Choose an option from the "complete this activity when" field at the bottom righthand corner as well as the Due Date field
  5. Click Assign.
