There are multiple ways to set dates within MyCourses. This tutorial will explain the difference between start, due, and end dates. It is important that you understand how these dates affect the students experience. Please review the tutorial on how dates affect the student experience to learn more. Below is an explanation of each of three possible dates that you can set within the Course Content area.
If you do not set any dates, the content, discussion topics, quizzes, or dropboxes are always available to the student. Please review the tutorial on the best practices when setting dates on discussion topics, dropboxes, and quizzes to learn more. You also have a choice to set either the start, due, or end date or any combination of the three. In most cases, faculty should use only the start and end dates if you wish to restrict content, discussion topics, dropboxes, or quizzes when setting dates. The due date should only be used when you do not want to restrict the students access to content, discussion topics, dropboxes, or quizzes but want to provide an idea when the items are due.
