Creating a Checklist
This article explains the steps for creating a checklist for students to access through course Content. A checklist is a great tool to provide students with itemized tasks to complete.
To set up a checklist, follow these steps:
- From the Navigation bar, create a module in the Content section.
- Within the module, select the blue Upload / Create button, and select New Checklist within the dropdown menu.
- Give the checklist a title and add any instructions relevant to the checklist, then press Save.
- The checklist feature allows you to add multiple overall tasks, with sub-tasks underneath. Select Add a New List… and an expansion box will open. This will be the first overall task list.
- Select List 1 to give your first list a title.
- Select the Add a New Task to List 1 option (this will change when you add your title), and within the next expansion box, select Task 1 and write the task to be completed.
- It is optional to include a due date and/or a description. If you choose to add a description, you may add text, documents, web links, videos, images, etc. Select the blue Upload button when complete.
- To add an additional task to the first task list, select Add a New Task to “your title”. Repeat 4 – 5 above to add tasks to the first task list.
- To add another task list, select Add a New List… below and repeat steps 4 – 6 above to add tasks to the second task list. Repeat as necessary.
- When the list is complete, ensure the visibility, date, and restrictions have been updated at the bottom of the screen.
Here is an example of what the checklist looks like from the student view. Students see the blue checklist title in the module and click to access it. As a student completes each task, they tick the corresponding box. Instructors are unable to view which tasks the students have completed. However, instructors can view which students have accessed the checklist in the module. Check out how instructors can view Student Progress in a course.
