How to Create Assignments Inside the Resource Library

To help you create assignments quickly and intuitively, there are various ways to do it on our educational platform. The most commonly used method is to create them within the classes. This is very useful and perfectly fine. However, if you want to create assignments that you wish to store in the Resource Library for later use, there is a better way to do it, and that is by creating them directly in the Resource Library.

To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Resource Library.
  2. Click on "My Assignments."
  3. Click on "New Assignment."
  4. Choose the type of assignment.
  5. Create your assignment as you normally would.

💡 Once you create your assignment, you will find it in "My Assignments," ready to be used anytime you want or to be shared with other teachers in your organization.

Tagging Features

We've added a new tagging system to improve how you find and organize assignments. This feature makes it easier to sort and locate the resources you need, saving you time and helping you access the right materials quickly.

💡 Make sure to add relevant tags when creating assignments based on subject and grade. This will enhance your ability to use the filters in the Resource Library effectively, ensuring your assignments are easily searchable.
