With our flexible scheduling, you are able to schedule Exercise stages to open and close concurrently and/or sequentially. Exercise stages scheduled to run concurrently will allow Learners to complete the Exercise at their own pace.
To schedule exercise stages, type dates in the Date fields  and times in the Time fields . You can also click the Calendar icon  and the Time menu arrow  to choose open and due dates and times.
To set identical open and due dates for all exercise stages, click the Set dates for each stage toggle button to the Off position . When all exercise stages have identical open and due dates, learners are able to move through the exercise stages at their own pace as long as they complete the entire exercise before the due date.
- Exercise stages are locked to ensure learners complete the current stage before moving onto the next stage.
- Learners that complete an exercise stage after the scheduled due date will have their stage submission marked late.
View Sequential Exercises
Exercise stages that you schedule to run sequentially will move all learners through the exercise on the same schedule. All learners must complete each stage between the open date and due date and cannot move on until the next stage opens.
View Combination Exercises
Exercises can also be scheduled with a combination of sequential and concurrent stages. Here, all Learners must submit to the Prompt & Response stage by the same due date but are then able to submit to the Peer Assessment and Reflection stages at their own pace before the final due date.
