  • course materials template
  • HLS lesson late penalties
  • attendance policy
  • reminders template
  • section settings:
    • section meeting times
    • section start and end dates
    • settings allowing assignments to be completed before or after the section start and end dates

    • time of day lessons are due
    • time zone
