Item: MyLab: How to assign and unassign content/activities

If the calendar is available in your course, you can assign content directly to the calendar using the Assign Content feature. The Assign Content option of Course Content lets you quickly assign content items, including entire folders, to specific dates in the calendar. In order to use this feature the calendar must be enabled for your course.

How to assign content/activities to the Calendar

To assign content to the calendar:

  1. Click Course Content, then Assign Content.

  2. Select a date in the calendar.

Note: You cannot add content to a date prior to the current date. 

  1. From the My Course list, select the item(s) you want to assign. If you select a folder, all content items in the folder are assigned.

Tip: Use the Display menu (at the bottom of the list) to filter the course content list to display all course materials, only assigned content, or only unassigned content.

  1. Click the Add to selected day button.

The items due icon appears on the day you selected in the calendar and in the Assigned column of the My Course content list. The item details are listed below the calendar. Note that the contents of assigned folders are displayed, not the folder itself.

For the student, assigned activities display when they click the calendar due icon or when they visit the View All Content page.

Generally, by default, items are due at 11:59 PM on the due date (only instructors can specify a different due time, see the General section of Preferences). If students do not complete the activity by the due date the item will be reported as past due.


How to unassign content/activities from the Calendar

To unassign content:

  1. From the Assign Content (or Organize Calendar) screen, select the assigned due date from the calendar.

  2. In the item detail list below the calendar:

    • To remove all assigned items for that date, click Unassign All.

    • To remove a single assigned item, select Unassign from the options menu for the item.

The item is removed from the list and the assigned icon no longer appears in the Assigned column of the My Course content list.
