During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI and a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that matches the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your teacher.

Old UI

Manage your time and direct your own learning path with self-assigned tasks.

To create a task for yourself:

  1. Select the desired course from the Course Chooser in the toolbar or click its Course Card on the Home page.
  2. Click the plus sign that appears next to the Course Chooser; if you don't see this plus sign, your teacher may not have self-assigned tasks enabled for the course.
  1. Give the task a title, description, and due date.
  2. Decide whether you want the completed task sent to your teacher (your teacher can disable this option).
  3. Click OK.

Creating and completing self-assigned tasks helps you take control of your own education, expand your understanding of course content, pursue your own interests, and show your teacher that you care about your performance.

Tips

  • You can use this feature to break large projects into smaller tasks with individual deadlines to help you manage your time and stay on task.
  • You can access self-assigned tasks and other personalized activities in For Me section of Performance.
