Instructors can use the checklist tool to help learners manage their time. You can use checklists to help breakdown activities your learners need to complete, and learners can self-check each step as they go. 

How do I create a checklist in my course? 

From the the navbar, select Course Tools > Checklist. Next, select New Checklist. Checklists are organized into Categories and Items. To add an item to your checklist, you will first need to create at least one category. Then, use categories to organize items on your checklist.

The video below (2:26) will show how to itemize an assignment using a checklist. This is one example of how you can use a checklist. See the Brightspace Documentation: Checklist for more information on checklists.
