Lessons

The instructors who develop your courses organize lessons in a logical sequence that allows you to incrementally build your knowledge and skills. For that reason, we ask you to complete a course's lessons in the order they appear in your course guide.

Lesson Submission Policy #

Usually, you may submit up to two lessons at a time. However, we strongly recommend that you submit only one lesson at a time so that you can benefit from your instructor's comments on one lesson before turning in the next. In some courses, you are required to submit lessons one at a time.

Please note the following:

  • All previous lessons must be graded and posted to your record before additional lessons will be accepted.
  • No lessons should be submitted beyond the midterm or other exam until you have taken the midterm or other exam.

Submission #

You should only submit one lesson at a time so that you can benefit from your instructor’s comments on one lesson before turning in the next. No more than two lessons should be submitted within a one week (7 day) period. If your course has due dates, be sure to submit assignments by the due date published in the course as late lessons will not be accepted.

Instructors normally grade lessons within one week of submission. If your lesson has not been graded within that period, please email the instructor. If you are on a tight schedule, communicate with the instructor in advance to see if they can help to accommodate your needs.

You submit most of your lessons by uploading them as file attachments. Some courses require students to submit URLs instead of a file. Since the nature of lessons varies by course, be sure to carefully follow the individualized instructions for composing and submitting your lessons described in each course. Most courses require a .doc or .rtf file for written files and .mp3 or .wav for audio files.

Your lessons must be processed through Canvas. Please never send lessons directly to your instructor's email address.

Grading #

Your assignment grade will be posted within seven calendar days of you submitting a lesson. If your grade has not been posted within the allotted time, first contact your instructor to make sure they received the lesson. Then contact us at 800-334-1011 if there is a consistent and considerable delay with your lessons.

Our peak grading period is from March through May. During this period, please allow additional time for us to grade and process your lessons.

Lost Lessons #

Indiana University High School does not take responsibility for lost lessons, and if one of your lessons gets lost in cyberspace, you'll need to resubmit it. We urge you always to make copies of lessons before you submit them and to keep your copies on file. Name your files with recognizable and unique filenames. Back up all your files and data.
