Milestones can be used for:
Progress tracking and as a project management tool for you, the students, and the employer.
Opportunities to solicit and give feedback between students and the employer.
The milestones you set for your class will show up for each student team that starts a project with a company on the platform. Examples of milestones include: having a kickoff meeting with the employer, a mid-way check in with the employer, presentations, or submitting a draft proposal. During the project, you will be able to see the progression of all your student teams on your course page's projects tab, or on the teams tab of an individual project.
As student teams reach milestones in your course, they simply mark the milestone as complete, and upload any supporting materials if there are any. When milestones are completed by the teams, employers are notified and prompted to respond on the platform with any feedback they may have. The student team will be able to submit their final deliverable after they have completed all their Milestones.
