"To-Do" List Confusing for Students

Feature idea (LEVEL 1)
Shannon Dillman

Can teachers hide the to-do list from the student view in a course?  My students see the "to-do" list and only click on that item which means they do not read the lesson material that precedes the assignment.  I know that you can collapse and expand the list, but I would like to know if I can "turn it off" basically for every student.

There is not currently a setting to disable the To-do list for students. One thing that can be done in this scenario is require completing/reading the lesson material before the assignment is allowed to be accessed. This can be done in the navigation settings of the lesson material by selecting "Student must complete before continuing".

Hi Shannon,

This has been a big problem for our school, too. Kids correlate the 'to do list' with a 'feed' type setting that they are so familiar with via facebook, etc. and think that is the whole enchilada. We are spending a ton of time redirecting them to actual lessons within our courses.

Yes, this is getting quite confusing for our students too. So much that they are requesting to move back to Brainhoney! Brainhoney has a clear display of the content. It would be nice to have an option to turn it off!

This is an issue for my students, too. Would it be possible to have the Announcements and To-do list always default to collapsed (arrow down) when a student navigates to the homepage or course activities page?

Any updates on this? Is there a way to make the to do list disabled, or to add lessons to the to do list?

In the new Activity Player, the To-do List is displayed in its own tab and is not the default tab. This takes the To-do List out of the way and only accessible when needed.
