Use the  Clipboard to create impromptu activities for any student at any time

To assign supplemental activities to individuals or groups:

  1. Open the Clipboard tool from the toolbar or Main Menu; Activities is open by default.
  2. Add the student(s), Quick Lists, and/or Groups to whom you want to assign the activity using the panel on the left (How do I add students to the Clipboard?).
  3. Add activity content by:
    • Choosing from the options under Add an Activity; you can upload a file, link a video, add a Google Drive document, link a website, or create an activity with a rich text editor.
    • Clicking Search Library, which allows you to choose content from other Buzz courses or external sources to which you have access.
  1. For each content item you add, indicate:
    • Whether it’s Gradable.
    • Where it goes in the Syllabus.
    • Its due date.
  2. Assign the activity by:
    • Clicking Assign if the item is not gradable.
    • Clicking Edit and Assign to define submission and grading criteria for each gradable item and clicking Assign.

Creating personalized activities using the Clipboard enables you to give truly individual attention.

What will the student see when a clipboard assignment is given? How is this communicated to the student? Thanks!

Clipboard Activities/Tasks act like regular activities. For example, if a due date is added, then it will appear in the student's To-do List. If it is gradable, on the student's Grades page. All of them will always appear in the student's For Me page in the Performance tool.

Clipboard Activities also will also appear in the student's course tree, as the teacher defines what folder it should appear in.
