What is Enhanced Assignments?

Enhanced Assignments allow educators to continue to enrich and scaffold the learning experience for their students by providing structured guidance and additional sources of inspiration for each assignment.

Educators can now add rich text to their assignment descriptions, such as bullet points, numbering, Bold and italic font, and hyperlinks. Educators can also add media from various sources, streamlining the video creation process for their students.
