The eDynamic Learning (eDL) courses bring with them some new activities. These are known as Course Resources and will include activities such as the summaries and objectives. These activities will be counted towards the Assignment grade weight, and students will earn a completion grade of 100% for viewing the content. An educator can always change the score for any graded activity as desired. These new activities show a deviation from a typical Edgenuity course structure.
Here is an example of the activities within one eDL lesson:
Another difference with eDL courses is the number of required teacher-graded activities. There are a lot more in eDL courses than in Edgenuity's courseware.
It should be noted that these courses do link to outside websites so Edgenuity attaches whitelists to courses.
