Step 2. Scroll to the bottom of the assignment to the Submission Status area and Click on the Add Submission button.

Online Text Assignment Submission:

If you do not see the option to upload a file to the assignment, then your instructor may have set up the assignment as an online text assignment.

Type or paste your assignment information into the Online text box for "online text" assignments. You use the tools above for formatting and attaching files and media as needed. You can also paste a link to a public or an unlisted YouTube video and use the link tool to activate the link to "submit" a YouTube Video.

Step 3. File Uploading Assignment Submission:


Step 3 Option 1: Click the Add button.

In the File picker window click the Upload a file link (left frame). It may default to Upload a file, so this step may not be needed.

In the File picker window (right frame) click on the Choose File or Browse button.  This takes you to your local files directory.  Locate your file, select your file, and click Open.  You are then returned to the file picker window.  Complete the process by clicking the Upload this file button at the bottom of the right frame of the file picker.



Step 3 Option 2: (Drag and Drop)

Alernatively, find your file on your computer's desktop or file directory, click on it and drag it into the the File submissions area where it says "You can drag and drop files here and add them".

Step 4: After you drag and drop your file to add it OR after you are returned from the File picker back to the File submission window, you should see your file icon and name. Click the Save changes button, which will return you to the Assignment page.
