A new wiki and blog tool is available in K-State Online and we are looking for instructors to try it out and provide feedback.
Wikis and blogs can be a very useful addition to your courses. They can be used for group collaboration, journaling, responsive assignments and more. Continue reading “Testers wanted for new K-State Online wiki and blog tool”
If the assignment can be accessed more than once (multi-take) and the student saved their progress while taking the assignment, then they may be able to reopen the quiz and continue from where they lost access. However, if they were only allowed to access the online assignment once, used all their allowed accesses, or did not save their progress, then the instructor may want to grant them another access to the online assignment using the Exceptions tool.
