You can set chapter-specific assigned reading for your students from books on Perlego! Once you've found the ideal chapter for your class, you can now share it easily to ensure students can find the right content easily and complete the readings before the start of the lesson!
You can access your assignments by visiting "My Workspaces" in the bar on the left. You will be able to create the Pre-Class assignments space and create a list of readings. Follow the steps below or watch this video!
Create a workspace for your class or course.
Invite your students/participants to the workspace. You can do this with their emails by adding them individually to view the list, or simply copy the link and share it, they will then get access to the list. Should they not have a subscription, they can view the content for a week on our free trial!
Add the relevant content/resources to the workspace for the class/course
Now click the “Create assignment” button using one of the books you added to the workspace to start creating a reading assignment for that book.
Give your assignment a title.
Go to the next step and select the chapter(s)/subchapter(s) that you would like to assign to the participants.
Go to the next step and then give the assignment a due date.
Then on the same step you can give the assignment a set of instructions that will be visible to the participants (optional).
Select the check box to request a written response from participants when the assignment is submitted (optional).
Once you are happy with the assignment you have created, click "Confirm and Publish".
You will then be redirected back to the workspace where you can see the assignment you have just created. The assignment should appear at the top of the "Assignments" tab.
To see who has read the assignment and the level of completion, click on the three dot button on the card and select “View insights” from the menu. If you requested a response from participants, select "View responses" from the menu.
