Manage Due Dates for Learners in Courseware

Explanation

In Plato Courseware, Educators have the ability to change the Due Date for a class or for a single learner. This knowledge article will cover the directions for editing the due date for a class or for a single learner. As a best practice we recommend including both a start and end date. An end date allows you to view pacing on the My Course Sections page.

Resolution

To edit start or end date for Learners 
  1. Go to your Courseware Program
  2. Click the Menu button and select 'Manage Courses' for Administrators and 'My Course Sections' for Instructors.

    *Warning: Updating Start and End Dates will recalculate student pacing.

NOTE: 

  • END DATES directly effects the pacing a student sees. View more on this here
  • If an educator has not checked the “lock if overdue” box the assignment will still be accessible to the student but have a red overdue alert on the main landing page.
  • If an educator has checked the lock box, the assignment will be locked as seen below:

Neither instance removes the assignment from view.
