Assignments


This tool allows teachers and students to manage assignments on a clear and timesaving way. Teachers can assign todos (including a description text and useful attachments) to entire groups or to specific students.

Both students and teachers see all assignments they've given or received in a clear overview, sorted chronologically by due dates. The list can be filtered by tags (e.g. the subject or topic) and it is possible to hide assignments that have already been completed. The interface has been optimized for large screens, tablets and smartphones.

Thanks to the online hand in of completed work and an interaction area between the teacher and student, the tool covers the whole workflow from attributing the work, asking questions, transmitting the finished product and giving feedback.
