What is Assignments Add-on for LearnPress WordPress LMS?
- Based on the increasing demand in Assignment and letting instructors grade the assignment, we have released the Assignment add-on for LearnPress LMS.
- With Assignment add-on, your course will be more flexible so that the instructors can create homework, essay tasks and setup a deadline for the student to submit their work. After that, the instructor can check the student’s work and grade their performance. There will be email notifications to the students when their assignments have been graded.
- Using Assignment, you will have another way of grading and won’t be too much dependent on Quizzes. You can let students and instructors communicate and discuss and generate better outcomes.
