Files can also be shared with the intent to assign work to the students/participants. Using the Assignments tool, files such as articles to read and critique, Excel sheets to fill, and PowerPoints can be uploaded to an individual assignment. Much like in a face-to-face class, a teacher can handout papers for their students to work on. The student must then hand-in their papers to receive a grade before the assignment is due. The teacher can then grade the papers and give them back to the students. With the Assignments tool, instructors can distribute, collect, and grade on-line assignments.
