The list of assignments is long for a 13 week course and always starts from the beginning of the course. Although they can be hidden and the Upcoming events are useful, I wonder if they can be scrolled automatically throughout the term.
The list would show last week's assignments at the top, then this week's assignments and the rest of the assignments will follow with "expired" weeks showing up at the bottom.
I am not sure what settings are to follow in this method to place this comment but I will take a guess. Maybe there should be an Ease of Use option.
