# WikiEducator roadmap/Support course assignments

Jump to: navigation, search

Per Mackiwg, the goal here is to associate a group of users with a specified activity, such as a forum discussion. In this particular case, the task depends on an improvement of existing discussion functionality, but a general mechanism for

• defining user groups
• defining assignments (with deadlines, etc.)

can be implemented beforehand. Such a mechanism would ideally integrate into the existing real-time discussion system, so that users can interact instantly.
