The main point of the Microproject tool to enable the instructors of a course to assign small tasks to members in the framework of a project, who then can mark the progress of the tasks within the tool, and also comment and upload content to the tool. After the tasks are finished, instructors can evaluate members, thus provide feedback to members. 

Members can also evaluate each other, this way instructors can receive specific information on the participation and performance of each member. 

New tasks can be assigned either only by instructors, or all members, depending on the settings.
