I apologize if this has already been asked and answered, but I could not find anything in my search of this forum.
We are piloting Moodle by converting what used to be correspondence (print-based) courses into an electronic format. These courses will be open-enrollment, that is students can enroll at any time and have up to six months to complete the course. For that reason, we are using the Topics format, as that seems to suit our needs.
So far the migration has gone swimmingly. However, as I go back to review courses that have been converted, I notice that Moodle is indicating that assignments are late (by highlighting them with red), even though we have indicated -- via Topics format -- that dates are not important.
Must we go back and change every date to 2010 or something like that or is there an easier fix? I hope it is the latter as the amount of change would be enormous to my staff.
Thanks in advance for any and all help (including -- "on page nn, you will see the answer to your question" )
