What is the difference between a Notebook and a Folder?

A Notebook is a place to store tasks that are related in some way, similar to an album in iTunes. You can group a project's tasks together and keep track of them together. A Folder is a generic way to organize your Courses, Notebooks and Websites however you choose, such as creating one for each semester, quarter or major.

How do I set up my course's grading?

In a course that has weighted grading, you can create a Kind for each task type, such as a homework, exam and project. For each kind you can set a weighted percentage that determines how much of the course grade that kind is worth. Often these percentages are told to you by your instructor.

If your course is not weighted, then course grades are calculated purely based on a task's score and possible points, and different kinds do not have weighted impact on the course.
