Elementary Experience Course View

You can find all your elementary courses from the Courses area on the mobile app.

To get started, tap Courses from the main menu and tap the name of your choice to continue to that class.

The Elementary experience offers a more simplified version of your class. Once you enter, you will see all the course content your teacher has made available to you on the Materials screen.

Folders and materials are displayed as single cards on the screen. Instead of the traditional course menu navigation on the left and Upcoming items on the right, you will see the most important content all at once.

Your teacher can add Featured Images for each folder and material type to help you navigate through the course and identify different tasks for you to complete.

Course Materials

The Materials area in your course lists all the assignments, assessments, tests/quizzes, files/links, discussions, and pages your teacher has made available to you.

Your teacher may organize the content differently in each of your classes, so the course materials might be listed as soon as you open your course or organized into folders.
