The “What’s New & Due Module Page” is a one stop location for students to receive an up-to-date feed of your course related information. Recommended modules to add here would be:
My Announcements: Quick updates faculty need to relay to students that can also be pushed out to the student’s Outlook Mail Email from the announcement itself.
What’s New: This reflects any changes students need to be aware of related to course content. For example, notifications of new discussion posts waiting to be read would alert the student here.
To Do: Within this module, notifications are driven strictly via assignment, assessment, or task due dates. At one glance, students can see which assignments are either past due, due today, or up and coming.
