Assignments can be easily converted from one type to another. For example, if you have an existing in-class activity and want to convert it to a homework assignment, follow these steps. The same general steps are used to convert any Activity types.
Locate the existing activity to be converted and select 'Edit' on the right sidebar.
This will take you to the Assignment Settings Page. The current assignment type will be highlighted near the top of the settings side bar. Select any other assignment type in this same area.
Note: Remember to review all settings areas after the change as some options may be new on this assignment type, or be different from the previous assignment type.
Click 'Save for Class' if you want the assignment to be published at a later date or click 'Publish' for the assignment to be immediately available to your students. Your assignment will now appear in the tab associated with the activity type selected.
You can also use the Duplicate or Copy To Draft button to make a copy of an assignment if you want to convert an assignment but keep the original. Just rename the assignment after duplicating it and follow the above steps.
You're all set! As always, feel free to reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
