A second generation assignments tool. Distinctive enhancements include a modern web user interface, assignment submission versioning, more powerful assignment workflow, and more feature rich integrations with the gradebook, Turnitin, OSP, iRubric and other Sakai Services.
Assignments2 can be run seamlessly alongside the existing Assignments tool in Sakai to allow you to evaluate both assignments tools. Additionally, A2 includes an import feature that easily ports assignments over from A1 to A2.
Plans & Status
IU has 100% adopted Assignments2 and continues to make bug fixes and small enhancements to it. There were many features from A1 that IU didn't implement - simply because IU faculty and students were not using them. IU did extensive research with IU's usability lab alongside analysis of A1 feature usage to come to this decision point.
IU would have/will work with groups willing to do development to port those features over.
