You can rename your Course or adjust the start and end dates.
You can create a new assignment for your course at any time. Use assignments to manage the work students do for your Course. Students' assignment submissions can be found on the assignments page where you can begin the grading process.
You can create assignments complete with prompts, specifications, and due dates. Students can view these details from an automated email message sent to them.
