The Progress Bar is a time-management tool for students.
It visually shows what activities/resources a student is supposed to interact with in a course.
It is colour coded so students can quickly see what they have and have not completed/viewed.
The teacher selects which pre-existing activities/resources are to be included in the Progress
Bar and when they should be completed/viewed.
