Tasks can help to keep course events distinct from your personal tasks. Use Tasks to break up a big assignment into sub-tasks to stay on top of all your due dates. Tasks is located on the right side of your D2L course or home page in the Calendar area.
- On the D2L homepage or the start page of your course, find Tasks on the right side of the page below the Calendar. Click once on Add a task and type in a short task name. When you press enter or click the mouse outside the Tasks box the task is saved automatically and displays with a checkbox and drop-down arrow.
- Click the checkbox to mark the task as completed or use the arrow to add notes, a due date or delete the task.
- Use the View Completed Tasks link to review or delete tasks that have been completed.
