To add an assignment to a course, go to your course’s dashboard and click "Add Content" (1). From the drop-down menu, choose "Add assignment" (2).
Give your assignment a name and pick one of the two available completion rules:
- Rule #1 (selected by default): "When instructor accepts the answer" (3) marks an assignment as complete only after the instructor has reviewed and graded it. If "Serial rule" is active, learners cannot continue to the next unit before the assignment has been completed.
- Rule #2: "When submitting an answer" (4) marks an assignment as complete upon learner submission. If "Serial rule" is active, learners can still proceed to the next unit, even if the assignment has not been reviewed and graded by the instructor.
You can then add a description (5), upload relevant files (6), and set a starting date, an ending date, or both (7). Click "Update" to save your new assignment unit.
On the assignment page, learners can view all the necessary information and submit their response by:
- using the free-text box (1)
- uploading a file (2)
- and recording a video/audio response (3)
To submit their assignment, learners must click "Submit answer" (4).
