Community Activities

Community is an online forum designed to facilitate discussion between teachers and students. Teachers create customized learning activities based on Community topics, then assign, track and report those tasks.

Creating a Community Activity

To create a new Community Activity:

  1. From the menu bar, select Community; or choose Assignments > Assignment Builder and select Create Custom Activity.
  2. If you are using Assignment Builder, select Community Activity and click Next.
  3. Within an existing topic, create a post (or choose an existing post) to serve as the assignment text.
  4. Click on the title of the thread. When the Community Thread window opens, click Add to Assignment.
  5. In the Assignment Builder window, select the check box next to the post(s) you want to serve as the assignment text and click Complete Assignment.
  6. In the Complete Assignment window, fill in the appropriate assignment details.
  7. Select the class or individual students you want to assign the activity to and click Finish.
  8. When the Assignment Confirmation window is displayed, you can choose to send the student(s) a message via the Message Center, by selecting the appropriate check box and clicking Send Message.

Using an Existing Community Activity

You can also use a system‐created Community learning activity, or use a forum thread or learning activity created by another teacher.

 

Note: Using another teacher’s Community learning activity or post will create a copy of that thread. Unless the students who posted to the original thread is assigned to the learning activity you create, their previous posts will not show up in the re‐used activity. Any permission settings used in the original post are also not transferred when you re‐use the activity.


To use an existing Community Activity:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Assignment > Assignment Builder and select the Curriculum tab.
  2. From the Curriculum menu, select the subject containing the activity you want to use.
  3. Select a Community activity (shown by the icon) title, or click the check box next to the activity and click Add Selected Tasks.
  4. Click Add to Assignment.
  5. In the Assignment Builder window, give the assignment a name. Then click Complete Assignment.
  6. In the Complete Assignment window, fill in the appropriate assignment details. Then click Next.
  7. Select the class or individual students you want to assign the activity to and click Finish.
  8. When the Assignment Confirmation window is displayed, click Close.

    The thread(s) will display in Community with the icon in the Thread Title field.
