  • Enroll yourself in the course! Take a look and decide what modules to assign.
  • Assign your students to complete one or more modules within the course.
  • Students self-enroll in the course and complete desired modules.
  • Librarians grade all quizzes and assignments and provide student feedback.
  • Students communicate their grades to you, typically via a screenshot.
