More about creating assignments
How do I create an assignment?
There are 4 types of assignments: 1. Upload a single file 2. Advanced uploading of files - options include: multiple file submission, allowing students to type a message alongside their submission & returning a file as feedback. 3. Online text - students type directly into Moodle, teachers can provide inline feedback. 4. Offline Activity - teachers provide a description and due date for an assignment outside of Moodle. A grade & feedback can be recorded in Moodle. To create an assignment, turn editing on, go to Add an activity and select one of the four assignment types.
