Major Update Released for Acellus Special Lessons Feature
Acellus has just released some major changes in how Special Lessons are assigned to students in Acellus courses.
Special Lessons are no longer assigned to students with “Due Dates.” Instead, they are integrated directly into the course and are assigned to the students as they progress through the course.
This allows the Special Lessons to be aligned more tightly with the course material and also presents students with a less obtrusive interface. Another advantage is that it accommodates students enrolling into a course at any time during the school year and working at their own pace, as the Special Lessons are assigned dynamically.
When a new Special Lesson has been assigned, it shows up with a “blue” flag. Once the student completes the assignment, the flag turns “green.” Note: Upcoming Special Lessons are no longer viewable by students until they have completed that portion of the course.
We feel these updates will dynamically change the experience of using the Special Lessons in Acellus courses.
