There is a new feature in eDynamic Learning (eDL) courses called Course Resources. Course Resources contain activities such as summaries and objectives. These activities will count towards the Assignment grade weight and students will earn a completion grade of 100% for viewing the content. However, educators can always change the score for any activity as desired. The reading level for the content ranges from grade levels 6 through 9. These new activities are a deviation from a typical Edgenuity course structure. There is no limit for the content. Once enrolled, the student has access for as long as necessary.
Note: Highlighting, Text Translation, and Text-to-Speech tools are not available for eDynamic Learning courses.
