To assign activities in the online learning environment, you must first have a class created. See Add Classes for details.
You may assign activities in two ways - directly from a resource on your Resources page (see Assign from Resource for details) or by searching and filtering for specific activities in the Assignables tab in the Content Library (see Related Articles below).
There are a variety of activity types that you can assign to students. Assigned activities are completed digitally within the online learning environment. You have the ability to assign any activity or group of activities from any level or grade, to any class, group of students or individual student.
eBook Activity: These include student edition, workbook, and other ancillary activities. Assigning these activities allows the students to complete them digitally. Many activities are auto-graded and students receive immediate feedback. Others are teacher-graded. You can assign any activity from any level or grade to any of the students in your courses.
Flipgrid: With Microsoft Flipgrid fully integrated into the online learning environment, you can create and save activities for future use, tag the activity to a specific level and unit, share your activity with other teachers and assign the activity to students with a specific due date. Some programs also have pre-created Flipgrid activities. Microsoft and Flipgrid are trademarks of the Microsoft group of companies.
Custom: These are teacher-created activities that allow you to share resources with students, create short-answer response activities, or allow students to upload different types of files for projects, presentations, etc. Some programs also have pre-created Custom activities.
Performance: This is a video tool that allows you to create activities to mimic national oral assessments, track student proficiency over time, and give personalized feedback to students. Some programs also have pre-created Performance activities.
eReaders: Each World Language program includes a selection of eReaders that can be assigned to a class, a group of students, or individual students. Mirrors and Windows users have eReaders which are selections from the anthology, as well as our Access Editions which include popular novels.
Bundle: A bundle is a group of activities that you have grouped to assign students a single grade. Bundles can include various types of activities for the students to complete in a pre-arranged order if you choose.
Integrated Performance Assessment: For World Languages, digital IPAs are available on the Bundles tab of the Assignment Library. There is an IPA for each unit of each level for each of our world language programs.
You can access your Assignables at any time to browse or create activities or bundles of activities to assign to your students.
