The Elementary Experience offers the following features:
- Simpler navigation: Students see a simplified course layout.

- Brand new Assignment experience: Students have the ability to draw, record, photograph, annotate, and more to submit their work. The current phase of the Elementary Experience enables students to take a photo, record audio/video, upload a file, type, and submit to the assignment.
- If you do not see the Elementary Experience in your course, reach out to your teacher with any questions.
What is the Elementary experience exactly?
The Elementary Experience offers a more simplified version of your course. Instead of the traditional course menu navigation on the left and Upcoming items on the right, you will see the most important content all at once. This includes a simplified course navigation menu on the left and folders and course materials displayed as individual cards on the main page. The course navigation menu provides access to My Activities (Materials page) and any installed course apps. When you open a material, it is displayed in a simplified full-page view.
Your teacher can add Featured Images for each folder and material type to help you navigate through the course and identify different tasks for you to complete.
