Cool New Features in 3.3

NEW! Journal Activity

The Journal activity is making a comeback! Once part of our installation, this unique online text assignment is available to us again in our new installation.

This activity allows students to continue to add to an online text assignment over time. Points are recorded just once, but instructor feedback can be entered as often as you like in response to student reflections.

When students open the link, they can enter their response.
