Instructors can create a checklist to emphasize various tasks or assignments in a D2L Brightspace course. For example, they may create checklists to help students stay on track of weekly course requirements or to manage various steps needed to complete an assignment. Checklists are managed by students who manually mark items as completed as they progress through the tasks.

Using Checklists

  1. Log in to Brightspace with your MyCarletonOne username and password.
  2. Click on your course under My Courses or the course selector grid 
  3. Click Content in the Navbar.
  4. In the left sidebar under Table of Contents, click on the module that holds the checklist.
  5. Click the checklist name to open it.
  6. Review the various tasks on the list. Any applicable due dates are written to the right of the task name.
    TIP: Click on any included blue links to open connected webpages or content items.
  7. After completing a task, click the select box select box to mark it as complete.
  8. Review overall progress at the top of the checklist in the progress bar, which lists the percentage and number of items complete.
    NOTE: Checklists may be included as an optional study aid to organize coursework or may be required by your instructor. Review your course syllabus and other communications from your instructor to be sure you understand the purpose of each checklist.
