The instructor may create assignments that require online or offline submissions. For online assignments, students can submit any digital content (files), such as word-processed documents, spreadsheets, images, or audio and video clips. Alternatively, or in addition, the assignment may require students to type text directly into the text editor. An offline assignment requires students to hand in hard copies of the solution. The instructor can specify if solutions are to be submitted individually or as a group. Assignments can be graded in cuLearn with the grades automatically showing up in the grade book.
Creating an assignment
- Turn Editing On from the top right corner of your course page.
- Go to your desired section.
- From the Add an Activity drop down menu, select Assignment.
- Customize the assignment through the settings page.
- Click Save and return to course (or your changes will be lost).
