  • Course Navigation – set up your course navigation to remove any unnecesary items to create a streamlined experience for your students.

  • Student View - see how everything will look for students before publishing your course.

  • SpeedGrader - makes it easy to evaluate individual student assignments and group assignments quickly. 

  • Media Feedback (in SpeedGrader) - leave feedback for your students using text, an attached file, video, or audio.

  • Groups – use groups to divide your class into smaller sections for discussion or collaborative work on a project.
