A. With Kora, you can easily break down the process of creating a body of work into smaller, more manageable parts, making it less overwhelming for both instructors and students.


B. If you have existing templates you can continue to use them. Templates can be associated with assignments that are clearly presented to students in their own dashboard along with important information such as due dates.


C. If you don’t have any existing templates or you are looking for simpler solutions to guide students through assignments, you can easily create prompts. Prompts enable instructors to provide instructions through simple text, as well as define the type of responses that would be most suitable, such as “text”, “upload file”, or “record audio or video”.


D. In Kora, the editing and design tools for creating work are easy.


E. You can easily manage due dates, late submission settings, and resubmission dates, keeping everyone on track and accountable.
