Activity Completion

If your PolyLearn course shell has a lot of content, sometimes it is difficult for students to keep track of work they have already completed or readings and videos they have viewed. Starting Fall 2017, Completion tracking by default will be turned on, which allows students to manually tick checkboxes or have checkboxes ticked based on conditions that you specify.

the checkboxes are displayed on teh course home page
