Moodle Basics

11 Submission Assignments

Moodle submission assignments are the digital equivalent of printing out your assignment and handing it in to your instructor in a classroom.

Moodle submission assignments can accommodate uploading digital documents such as word processor files (Microsoft Word),  spreadsheets, and PDF files .  Your instructor will provide you with assignment details, requirements, expectations, and other special provisions for the assignment.

There are also Moodle submission assignments that require you to record and upload a video. Video assignments are handled differently and would not use the standard Moodle submission assignment. To read more about submitting videos for a video assignment, please contact your instructor.
