Inserting a topic assignment

FELIX 30-070

What you need to know

Assignment and organization of individual or group work

Topic assignment allows topics to be assigned digitally.
Completed work can also be submitted and/or returned digitally.
If you also want to assess students digitally, add the assessment element, too (see Helpcard 30-110).

What you have to do

  1. In your course, click on "Course editor" under "Administration" (top left).

    • The course editor will open.

  2. In the course structure (left), activate the course element under which the new element is to be inserted.
    Under "Insert course elements" (above), select the element "Topic assignment". You will find this element in the category "Other". Alternatively, you can use the "Quick-Add" search function.

    • You can also move the element later by dragging and dropping.

  3. To rename the course element, in the "Title" field enter the title you want to be displayed in the course. If necessary, abbreviate the title in the "Title in course menu" field. "Save" your entries.

    • The "Title in course menu" will be displayed in the menu on the left. Since the menu has a fixed width, a maximum of 25 characters is recommended.

    • Under "Insert additional information" below, you can enter, for example, learning objectives and instructions for learners.

    • Under "Configuration" you define the basic configuration of the topics to be created, e.g. the number of topics per participant.
      Under "Add field" (in the same tab) you generate a maximum of five additional fields adapted to your needs for a more detailed description of the topics. Already existing fields are title, description and topic owner.
      In the "Dates" section, you can define the registration and/or submission deadlines of the topics, if desired.

      These changes made in the "Configuration" tab will take effect after publishing in the course view, either in the overview table or within the topic.

    • Under "Persons in charge" you can enter additional topic owners (creators). If you add your course participants here, they can determine and enter their topics themselves.

      Under "Partial elements" you can (de)activate the drop box and return box.

      Under "Due date" you can activate the sending of an (email) confirmation for the submission of the work.

  4. Click the red cross (top right) to close the course editor. Select the "Publish automatically" option to publish the change.

    • The new element is not displayed in the course view until it has been published.

  5. Create your desired topics in the new element with "Create Topic" (top right) according to the basic configurations you made (see step 3).

    • When creating the topic, you can enter how many students may work on or choose this topic.

    • When a topic is created, a group is automatically generated in which the students enroll when they select the topic. To enable students to use the group as an exchange platform, you as the group supervisor can equip the group with tools (see Helpcard 20-010).
