Coming next week: the D2L Work To Do Widget. On the IUP D2L homepage, the Work To Do widget provides learners a summary of assigned learning activities from all their courses that are overdue or have an upcoming due date.

You can add the Work To Do widget to your course homepage using the “Add a widget to a course homepage” instructions. When the Work To Do widget is added to a Brightspace course homepage, it will aggregate the data and show only due and overdue learning activities for that course.

Ensure you have set due dates for all learning activities in your course that you want to appear to students in the Work To Do widget. Learning activities only appear in the Work To Do widget when the activity has a defined due date or end date. By default, the widget displays activities due in the upcoming two weeks and overdue work from the previous 12 weeks.
