A message from a teacher to a student. A Handout can include announcements, reminders, instructions, assigned activities, or requests for work. Handouts consist of a list of recipients (an entire class or one or more students in a class), a name, one or more activities, and instructions. A recipient and name are required; all other information is optional. You can also specify a Handout due date. If you add a due date, any activities or work a student submits after the due date are late. Schoolwork automatically sets due dates to 11:59 p.m. local time for the specified day.

Teachers can post a Handout, or save a Handout as a draft until they are ready to post at a later time.
