Activity Completion: View an Activity or Resource

Home > Activity Completion: View an Activity or Resource

These steps require that completion tracking be enabled in your course.

Often you just want to verify that a student has viewed a specific resource like the syllabus, video, etc… To do that you can use this type of Activity Completion. 

Locate and enter the activity or resource you want to verify students have accessed.

If Editing is turned on, click the Edit menu (three vertical dots) and click the Edit Settings option.


Click into the activity or resource and from the Secondary Navigation click the Settings link.

Expand the Activity completion section.

  • Set Completion tracking to Show activity as complete when conditions are met.
  • Check the Student must view this activity to complete it check-box.
  • If you don’t have a due date set on your assignment, you may wish to enable and set the Expect completed on date. This won’t prevent students from completing beyond that date but will post a reminder on the Timeline and Calendar found on the Dashboard.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
