How do I create tasks for myself?

Manage your time and direct your own learning path with self-assigned tasks

To create a task for yourself:

  1. Select the course for which you want to create your own task from the Course Chooser in the toolbar.
  1. Click the plus sign that appears next to the Course Chooser; if you don't see this plus sign, your teacher may not have self-assigned tasks enabled for the course.
  1. Give the task a title, description, and due date.
  2. Decide whether you want the completed task sent to your teacher (your teacher can disable this option).
  3. Click OK.

Creating and completing self-assigned tasks helps you take control of your own education, expand your understanding of course content, pursue your own interests, and show your teacher that you care about your performance.
