Can students view assignments anywhere or are they blind to them?
When I assign students something with the new assignment feature, how do they know if they've reached that goal and they've done what I've assigned?
For instance if I challenge them to do 75 xp by a certain date, where do they see this assignment, and their progress towards it?
Awesome. I implemented this today, and the first thing students were asking was how to be aware of their own progress.
Email is great, but a lot of high school students don't regularly use it as a form of communication. Even a duolingo notice would be cool so they can see they have a new message on the bell when they log in.
