Moodle: How to find and submit an Assignment

During your studies, you will be submitting your assignments and getting feedback online. Ensure that you read and understand each of the following essentials points:

  • Before you can submit your first assignment for each Unit, you must complete that Unit’s Evaluation Survey. Until you have completed this survey, the assignment will remain locked. For example, when submitting your first assignment for Creativity, you will have to complete the Creativity Unit 11 Unit Evaluation Survey. Click here to find out how to complete a Unit Evaluation Survey.
  •  Your assignments need to be  in a MSword format, before you upload them into moodle. Therefore if you use any other word processing program (i.e Pages, Open Office Text or Google Docs) you must export you document into to MSword.
  • When you submit any assignment to Moodle, you must ensure that the document’s filename adheres to the MCI naming convention:                    student number (5….) + surname + assignment title. For example Alan Hain’s (student number 50012) Philosophy assignment 2A, would have the following filename:

50012HainPhilosophy2A

  • Make sure you receive an email confirmation that you have submitted your assignment. This email is your receipt of submission.
  • Please remember that you must keep a  copy of your all your submissions until you have received a final grade for your course, as you may be required to produce your submission again after the assignment date.

The short video below, shows you the complete process of finding and submitting an assignment in moodle. The paper guides underneath break this process in two stages : how to find an assignment and submitting your assignment.
