Do you find yourself falling behind grading your quizzes or submitting your quiz grades in Brightspace? My Just(in) time training video this month focuses on setting up notifications for your quizzes in your course(s). Whenever a student completes the quiz, you will get an instant email message letting you know that a quiz has been submitted for that particular course. This can then prompt you to go in your course and either grade the quiz, or view the grade and attempt. To see how you can set up your own quiz notifications in your course, please click the tutorial (5 min.) below:


If you have any questions or comments about your setting up notifications for quizzes in your course, please email us at askcidet@sjcme.edu
