Visual tour of the new create and edit assignment experience

The create and edit Assignments page has a fully immersive page layout. This layout is consistent with other areas of Brightspace Learning Environment, including Assignments, Content, and Lessons, where you can upload and create a new assignment.

The primary panel on the left contains frequently used fields that are always displayed. These fields are most relevant to learners and include the core details instructors want to add; a due date, instructions, and attachments. When you enter a score, your assignment is added to Grades, and the name and score are automatically synched for you. You can also select existing grades and categories, if you usually create grade items in advance. Added attachments appear as embedded links, which provide a preview of the attachments.

The panel on the right organizes additional, more advanced options such as start and end dates, rubrics, annotation tools, and Turnitin. When these options are collapsed, summary text provides details about which settings are active and subtle hints that aid in the discovery of additional settings. As a result, you can see everything at a glance with little to no scrolling, and without having to navigate through any tabs.
