We have been using folders with dates as a way to show long term assignments/projects on the class calendar. Teachers post a folder with all the necessary materials for the project in the folder, along with an assignment with the due date where they can turn in their work. This works really well online because the folder creates a long bar on the calendar, reminding students to work on the project every night without having to post an assignment every day.
Our problem is that in the app, long term events and folders do not show up the same way, so students who prefer to work at home from the app are missing that reminder.
Does anyone have a solution for long term assignments that works well?
