- Suggested game-play times are based on averages; some students will take longer, while others will go faster. If a student gets stuck in a game, you can move them ahead.
- In addition to games, you can also add assessments to a playlist.
- If a student completes the playlist games before the assignment has ended, the remaining time becomes Free Play. Free play will be available for any topic(s) assigned in the playlist.
- A playlist will end at the selected end date, whether or not students have finished all of the games.
- All playlists have a default name. It is recommended that you change the name of the playlist to make it easier to find at a later date. For example, "Period 1: Chemical Reactions"
