I started it years ago in my in-person classes. I had students turn in whatever they got done at the end of class, so I could see how they did. I usually had extra copies for those students who wanted to keep working. In my online classes, I can't require them to turn in whatever they had done by the due date... but I usually use Canvas' Message Students Who tool to send messages with resources and help videos once they are late. I also encourage them to turn in whatever they can so I know they are trying and where they are stuck. And almost all of my students take advantage of the resubmissions - probably because I message any student who didn't score perfectly with reminders to resubmit. There are always some in points-based classes who will be happy with 18/20 and not resubmit, which is why I'm planning to do "Incomplete / Complete" grading this semester to make sure students have a reason to look at the feedback.
I have a few hard deadlines in the class where all resubmissions are due for content - usually on exam days, since the point was to learn for those summative assessments. In classes without exams, I still have those close dates so that students know where they stand and don't get unreasonably far behind. I ended up not loving too many flexible deadlines and changed my policy slightly this semester to have some learnign assignments required before class meetings.
