This is a hybrid class. That means that the students will be working in a Moodle Room to complete different items (such as assignments, quizzes, tests or projects). Each online item will have a specific due date. Once that item is due, then the item closes out and students can no longer submit that particular item. The other part of the class comes from lessons, assignments, tests or projects that the teacher presents.
