4.1.1. Features of the Action Items Page

  1. Back arrow: This takes you back to your last visited page in the eBook.
  2. Menus from the eBook
  3. Logout
  4. Difference between the "To Do" and "Completed". "To Do" are the number of items where the teacher is requiring student feedback. "Completed" are all of the items the student has provided additional feedback to the teacher response. If only the "TO DO" button is blue, only "TO DO" action items will be visible.  If only the "Completed" button is blue, then only action items the student has already responded to will be visible.  Finally, if both buttons are blue then all action items will be visible.
  5. The student can expand all visible action items with the "Expand All" button or expand individual items with the arrow. Once an item is expanded, you will have the option to "Collapse All".
  6. Adjust the action item per page view: At the bottom of the Action Items page are the rows per page and the number of items shown on each page. The student can select either 10, 25, or 50 rows per page. Use the right and left arrows to navigate backwards or forwards by page.

All of the options to reply such as canvas, text, or images are also available as explained in previous sections. Entries made on the Action Items page are also available in the eBook below corresponding problems.
