Wouldn't it make more sense to be able to change the "assigned" date for an assignment instead of only the "due" date? I am almost always going to forget to get on Duolingo on the exact day that I assign something. It would be easier to input the date assigned and the date due into Duolingo. Then one could add multiple assignments at a time instead of waiting until one actually assigned the work.
My students have to get 100 pts per week. It would be a lot more convenient if I could set up all of the assignments for the quarter so I could see them more easily and so could they.
Thanks for the suggestion, Leviantrim, I can understand the need for wanting to get things organized in advance. :]
What is the advantage of doing the point system? I haven't figured out the logistics of what's more efficient on my end...the point system or the assigned lesson system.
Point system is best if your students learn at their own pace and are at different levels. If you prefer them all to reach the same part of the tree at the same time, they it is better to assign a skill. You can also alternate between both to switch things up. :]
