Giving a piece of content a deadline emphasises the importance of the content and the time-frame it should be completed in.
When you set the Deadline, your assigned learners will receive email reminders so they don't miss out.
1 Week before (if applicable)
1 Day before
1 Day after
Setting a Deadline
Head to the Release & Deadline step for your content type.
under the Deadline section, choose one of the two options:
Choose a specific date
Choose a period of time
Specific date: This will set the Deadline on a fixed date, regardless of when the Course was published. for example:
Your Course has a Deadline of 10 June
You published it on 5 June
User A is assigned on 5 June
User B is assigned on 8 June
User A has 5 days to complete it, User B has 2 days to complete it.
Period of time: The Course Deadline will be relative to the date the User has been assigned to the Course, so for example:
Your Course has a Deadline of 2 Weeks
You published it on 1 October
User A is assigned on 1 October
User B is assigned on 24 October
User A has 2 weeks from 1 October to complete it, User B has 2 weeks form 24 October to complete it.
