About Checklist

A checklist is a way to highlight important or required assignments, readings, or other items to complete. A checklist may list all the items you need to complete at once or may have items appear as you complete other items. Each checklist contains one or more categories, into which checklist items are organised. For example, you might have an Assignments checklist with categories for written assignments and quizzes, both of which could have multiple items that you need to complete. The checklist on VU Collaborate has two different interfaces when accessed from the unit module or unit tools section. Read the guide below to learn the differences between the interfaces.
