Scheduling lessons for your learners

Use Tasks to assign EP content, and plan your day, week, or month

Finding content to assign 

For each key subject on EP, we have downloadable Lesson Outlines available to help you plan and organise your learner’s workload. 

These can be found within your account's Content Library, otherwise, find them in our article here.

Learner view

When your learner logs in, the task will appear under the Tasks & Assessments section. They'll be shown how long they have to complete the task.  

Our learner experience guide shows how students can access EP and the work you've set for them. 

Check out our video for an overview on how Smart Lessons work, and what they look like from a learner's perspective.

Simply complete the steps in the Assigning a Task section with different content and different dates/times to plan ahead.

To plan the week, make sure you set all tasks to start on Monday morning but finish on the day/time you want the task to be completed.

For example, if you want your learner to focus on English on a Wednesday morning: Set the task to start at 9:00am on a Monday but set the task to finish at midday Wednesday.

Planning your day like this will make all work available to your learners, but will segment it into days as seen below.
