Set or remove a due date

Due dates help both students and teachers keep track of upcoming, as well as completed, work.

Due dates can be set any Lessons on Stile. This can help provide a clear path for students to work in a more organised and timely way. Teachers can easily set and edit these dates as needed, as well as assign varying due dates for each Class within a Subject.

What the student sees


The student's home page contains a list of due dates in a column to the right of their Subjects. The student can see what Lessons are overdue or due that day, as well as upcoming due dates.
Overdue Lessons are highlighted in red and marked with a ringing alarm clock icon.
Lessons completed before the due date are highlighted in green and feature a tick mark.

Protip: Students can click directly into their Lessons from this list so they don't have to go searching for something as its due date approaches.



The student will see the due date specific to their Class below the Lesson's title and cover image.
