This is a Moodle activity module that allows instructor to create a checklist / to-do list / task list for their students to work through. The instructor can monitor all the students' progress, as they tick off each of the items in the list. Items can be indented and marked as optional. Students are presented with a simple bar showing how far they have progressed through the required/optional items and can add their own, private, items to the list. This is a gradable activity.

- Dates can be added to items (and exported to the calendar)
- Teachers can comment on an individual student's items
