How do I use the Notes column in the Gradebook?
You can use a Notes column in the Gradebook to keep track of extra information in your course, such as extra student information or general notes. The Notes column is not visible to students.
- Instructors can only show and hide the Notes column. Admins can use the API to create additional columns, but they cannot be hidden.
