The create and edit Assignments page has an updated look and feel. The classic tabbed view has been transformed into a new, fully immersive page layout.
The primary panel on the left contains frequently used fields that are always displayed. These fields are most relevant to learners and are the core details lecturers want to add; a due date, instructions, and attachments.
The panel on the right organizes additional, more advanced options such as start and end dates, rubrics, annotation tools, and Turnitin. When these options are collapsed, summary text provides details about which settings are active and subtle hints that aid in the discovery of additional settings. As a result, you can see everything at a glance with little to no scrolling, and without having to navigate through any tabs.
The new experience streamlines the process of linking assignments to your gradebook. When you enter a score, your assignment is added to Grades, and the name and score are automatically synced for you. If you traditionally create grade items in advance, support for selecting existing grades and categories is also available. Note: This will pick up your default gradebook scheme. You can edit this in the grades if you want to change the visibility of the grade item or scheme.
You can choose to opt-in or opt-out at any time by pressing on the pull down menu
