Tasks

Help students track and manage the progress of various tasks, from turning in homework assignments to reminders to pick up a midterm or purchase a textbook. Tasks allow students to mark when they've started a project, when it's in progress, and when complete.

Roster

Wondering who's in your class? With the class roster, you can quickly see your full class list, making organizing study groups a whole lot easier.

Media

Students can access music, videos and images uploaded by their instructors and experience directly from their mobile devices using the appropriate media-specific software.
