MackinVIA Admin: AssignmentsWith the assignments feature, administrators and group managers can assign resources and reserve the needed copies for a scheduled period of time. Go to Classroom - Assignments.
Click the “Create New Assignment” button and choose the resource you want to reserve.
For single-user titles, make sure you have the number of copies needed and set the date range you want to reserve the resource.
You can add instructions to your assignment, format them, and include hyperlinks. Remember to change the hidden / showing button to “showing” so your users will see the instructions. And save.
MackinVIA generates an Assignment Code for every assignment that is created. Be sure to give this Code to those who will be using this resource and ask them to join the assignment. The resource will then automatically be checked out to them at the appropriate time.
Monitor the “members” as they join the assignment. You can remove members if the wrong student accidentally redeems a code, or if a student is no longer in the class, and you need to free up a copy to be used by another student.
Scheduled and Active Assignments can be edited or deleted by Full Administrators or the Group Manager who created them.
Click the Edit button and make your changes. If you change the Assignment Code, the assignment page in your users’ backpacks will automatically display the new code for the resource. Only students who are new to joining the assignment will need to enter the new code.
To delete an assignment with members, you must first remove the members.
Assignments that have been completed are considered inactive and can not be edited or deleted.
