Ready for Semester End?

Here are some tips for the end of the semester in BOLT:

Check your progress!
Use Assessments > Class Progress to check where you stand in your classes.

Schedule any proctored exams.
Are you supposed to take a proctored exam? Make sure to schedule within the specified timeframe.

Download stuff!
Use Binder to download your course content. You can download Binder for iOS or Android devices. You can also use the Download feature to download your submissions and feedback from the Assignments tool.

Export ePortfolio!
Are you graduating? Take your ePortfolio with you. See the myDesire2Learn Access widget in BOLT for details on how to do this.

Grades Exemption Expansion

Did your instructor exempt you from graded activities in BOLT?

If an instructor exempted you (in BOLT) from a graded activity they linked in Content, you should now see the exemption in Content.

This is an expansion of the Grades Exemptions feature in BOLT. (Please note: If your instructor exempted you from activities, assignments, or grades outside of BOLT, you won't see that in BOLT unless they add the exemption to BOLT for you!)
