About Assignments:
Some instructors require submitting of homework using the Assignments or Drop Box tool. This tool basically allows a way for the student to submit a saved file to the instructor for grading, feedback, and/or additional edits. The name of the tool is up to the instructor, the same with the location...but typically it will be called "Assignments" and located on the course homepage.

Accessing Assignments :
Once you have located the Assignments tool, click on it to enter. Then to enter a particular assignment, click directly on the assignment title.

Always note the intended assignment grade, due date as well as any special instructions. Some instructors will also provide a sample or assignment file for you to download and view (click directly on file name and choose save to disk).

Write up your assignment in a word application (Word Perfect or Microsoft Office) and save the file to the desktop.

NOTE: unless otherwise advised by the instructor, when saving a document for submission it is best to save it in a Rich Text Format (.rtf) - File -> Save as, and choose the file format for (.rtf). This format option is found in most if not all word applications. Rich Text format allows the instructor a better chance of opening the file no matter what kind of word application they have installed.

Submitting an Assignment:
To upload the assignment, return to the assignment area, click directly on the assignment title, then select the button for "Upload file".

Click the "Browse" button to locate the saved file, click once to select, click "open", "upload".

To finalize the submission, click the checkbox next to your uploaded assignment file name, then click the "Submit assignment" button.

Click OK to confirm submission.

If successful, you should end up with a success screen similar to the following image.
