In the 'Lessons' tab, students will find all of their lessons and descriptions. As students complete each lesson, the circle around the image turns green reflecting their level of completion.
In the assignments tab, students will find all of their assignments, including those that were not included as part of a lesson.
(You can add additional class assignments at any time during a running class.)
From this tab you can also create staggered schedules that allow you to request assignment from single students on different dates. This is a great feature for workshop focused classes.

This is where you can see all discussions that have taken place within your class. You can comment on and start class discussions, this is a more informal way of communicating with your class.
