Batch Edit of Assignments

BYU Learning Suite allows instructors to batch edit assignments. This means that multiple assignments can be edited at the same time, with several options available for editing the assignments.

 

Step One:

Log in to your Learning Suite course and click Assignments in the Course Home navigation menu.
