We can set deadlines on our Moodle assignments, but it's sometimes necessary to change these for individual students, who might have special circumstances. In this video, we'll learn how to change deadlines. As we set up assignments in previous videos, we noticed, in the assignment settings, there are due dates and cutoff dates. And the cutoff date means just that, that after the date it's no longer possible for a student to hand in work. However let's say that one of our students is ill and needs an extension.
How can we change it for that student but not for the others? If we scroll down to one of our assignments in the Assessments and Evaluation section. For example, the final assessment, Meet me in Saint Louie. And then if we click the link, View Grade or Submissions, then if we assume that our student Rebecca has sent us a message saying she's ill and she's not able to submit the work yet. We need to go to the Edit column. And then click on the arrow, and we have an option there, Grant extension.
If we click Grant extension, we're then able to change the due date to a date of our choice. So let's give her until the first of September to submit her essay. Then when we click Save the changes, we can see that Rebecca has had an extension granted until the first of September, where as the others are still remaining the same. And so in this video we've explode how to change deadlines and grant extensions to students who need them.
