Instructors use the Tasks tool to organize projects or activities (referred to as
tasks) by defining task priority and tracking task status. A user can create tasks
and post them to the Tasks page. Each user can post personal tasks to their page.
Instructors can post tasks to users participating in their courses, and administrators
can post tasks to all users' Tasks pages. Task information is arranged in columns
that display the priority, task name, status, and due date.
Tasks are also available as a Course Group Tool for tasks that are specific to a smaller group within a course.
