Include rules and current debate topic information on a side panel
My students kept forgetting about the deadlines and would post about a topic within the wrong grading period. The information was in the course syllabus, but it'd be good to have Packback as a self-contained assessment where it's clearly posted on a side panel what the current debate is and what the deadline for posting about it is, then maybe in smaller letters, maybe one day before the current grading period starts, what the upcoming debate is. It'd serve as a reminder to post about the right topic, at the right time. A link to the course syllabus and information about how the students' Packback points contribute to their course grade might also be helpful?
