Start by going into your course editor. Then go to the wrench ?? icon and click on course settings and unclick “continuous course.” This takes away the setting of having all of the due dates populate by themselves based on the ending date. You can also change the ending date for the last day of the semester if you need to. Make sure to save before you exit!
Next, click on scheduling at the top of page. This will take you into the calendar when you can easily assign any of your assignments/quizzes. All of your modules will be on the left side. To open a module, click on the folder and everything will drop down. Drag and drop your assignments and quizzes to whatever date you want them on.
If you place something on the wrong date, click on the assignment in the calendar. It will come up below the calendar. Click the 3 dots on the right side and remove the due date.
If you want to go into individual assignments to schedule them and change any other settings, you will click on the pencil for that assignment to edit it. Click settings at the top of the page. Check the box next to due date. This will give you a calendar option and the ability to allow late assignments. There are a bunch of other settings here as well that you can work with!
