Individual Progress

This block will help you and your students keep track of their progress, as compared to their individual goals (for asynchronous programs).  

It allows DL/BL students a little extra help with setting deadlines and tracking progress.

As a teacher, you set the items that require deadlines.   Students will then have the ability to set a deadline date for each of your items.

As it's a new block, here's an example APPLICATION OF THIS PLUGIN.
