Moodle Student Guidebook
7. Assignment Activity
The Assignment module allows teachers to collect work from students, review it, and provide feedback including grades. Using assignments, students can submit any electronic files (e.g., word-processed documents, spreadsheets, images, audio, video clips) or type their response directly into Moodle. Note that instructors may enable a setting so that students will have to click a Submit button to declare their submission as final.
Please note: Because network connections can break down, if you are composing an online text Assignment be sure to "Save changes" frequently. You can click "Edit submission" to add more content before you "Submit Assignment." If you have been typing your online text response for a good while (15 minutes or more), before you click to "Save changes" consider selecting your text and copying it to your clipboard or a word-processing program. If there is an error with the submission, you will still have a full copy of your response and can resubmit it after the network connection is re-established.
