Faculty: OAKS Checklist

A checklist is a way to highlight important or required assignments, readings, or other items to complete.  A checklist may list all the items you need to complete at once or may have items appear as you complete other items.  Each checklist contains one or more categories, into which checklist items are organized. For example, you might have an “Assignments” checklist with categories for written assignments and quizzes, both of which could have multiple items that you need to complete.  Using the Checklist tool, faculty can:

  • create a visual guideline to help students determine what they need to accomplish to complete the course.
  • use it to release OAKS items to students.  You can set up so that if  a student does not mark an item as completed, other course content, or checklist items, might remain invisible to that student.

    Can you copy and modify a checklist? They are similar week to week, but don’t want to recreate the wheel each time. Just modify as needed. Can’t seem to figure out how to do this on OAKS without starting over or losing the current checklist.

      Beth, that is an excellent question. I’ve looked everywhere, including D2L’s documentation, and can’t find any way to copy a checklist. I’ll reach out on Twitter and see if anyone on the web has a different answer.

        Hi Beth,

        D2L responded via Twitter. While you can’t copy them you can export and import. Here’s a tutorial on exporting: bit.ly/2dlVJqX + importing: bit.ly/2cwaBwS you need only select the Checklist.

    Thanks Mendi! I’ll play with it . I guess you could create one in a different class, import, then change the title and import again. Seems cumbersome, but perhaps it will work. Thanks for checking on it for me!
