Milestones are checkpoints in a course that help educators, students, and employers keep track of students' progress. They are set by educators and located towards the bottom of a course page.
Educators can set milestones by editing their course page.
Students submit milestones to notify their educator and employer of their progress.
Employers keep track of milestones by checking their project page.
- Educators can track the progress of multiple students or student teams in one place by asking students to submit milestones, all while keeping employers updated.
- Students can prevent scope creep by sticking to the milestones outlined by their educator.
- If students are lagging behind on completing milestones, they are sent an automatic email reminder.
- Completing all milestones enables students to receive feedback and recommendations from their employer to showcase for future job interviews.
