Why are there two places for me to put in dates for my assignment?

There are two locations where dates can be set up: (1) Assignment settings and (2) Restrict access. Assignment access is for your general assignment access, when the link will be open and available for students to submit work or take a quiz and a close date when that activity is due. NOTE: Do not use the dates in Restrict access (a new feature of MOODLE2) for opening/closing activites. It is a special block created as an “if, then” sequence if you choose to only offer the next complete if a previous activity is complete. You can also control how your students can view/access different parts of your course by which eyes are open or closed. Closing the eye for a whole upcoming week is better than using Restrict access.

For these options, you must check the “Enable” box.
