This tool allows Instructors to create a list of tasks associated to a module.
Tasks can be set as low, normal or high priority. Students can then view the tasks for the module and set a status e.g. in progress, completed. This tool is also available within Groups allowing students to create tasks at a group level.
Add tasks to the menu by clicking + and then Add Tool Link:
Select tasks from the drop down list, enter a Name and select Available to Users. Then click Submit.
Go to the module menu item. Click Create Module Task.
Enter a name, description, due date and priority. Then click Submit.
The task is now created and will appear on the Tasks page for students to view, start and complete. If you make a mistake, you can edit the task via the drop down menu:
You can ask students to update the status of the tasks. Then if you click on the hyperlinked task name you will see a list of who has started/completed the it:
Staff roles are included in the list. It is not possible for us to remove them. We have asked Blackboard to improve this functionality.
