Overview: The notifications tool goes hand and hand with the module page (course dashboard) tool which displays their course information at a glance. Students can use a “dashboard” and see what is due when, if there are new items to look at, announcements, grades, and more. The instructor can choose what modules display in their course to students but they can’t control what content is displayed in those modules because it comes from the system. Therefore, students will see information from other courses as well.Since students can view information from all of their courses within the modules selected on the “dashboard” page it’s very important that if you choose not to use the tools that you have your information updated. For example due dates show up in the student’s view of the grade center and also on the To do, what’s due module. So, if you have due dates from previous terms they will display and confuse students.
