What are they?
Your instructor may use a tool called Assignments as a place to upload a file (e.g. a Word doc), submit text or attach a video. You might access assignments from a link in the left-hand Course Menu. Or your instructor might incorporate assignments into each week's module. Assignments may include submission of a paper, PDF, PowerPoint, the uploading of a video response or images, etc., which will be only available for your instructor to view.

PRO TIP: In order to avoid problems submitting an assignment, do not wait until the last minute. Technical issues may occur and cause your submission to not go through and be marked as "Late".
When submitting a file, you will see a progress bar. When the upload is finished the screen will refresh and display a preview of your work along with the date and time it was complete. If you have any concerns, contact your instructor immediately.
