Video: Completing text assignments

Aside from the resources or information that your instructor is going to be providing to you inside of your Moodle course, they are also going to be providing you a bunch of different assignments that you can complete, so that you can be graded on. The first type of assignment that we are going to look at is the simple text based assignment. You can access all the assignments for your course from the Activities blog ion the left-hand side by clicking on the Assignments link. That will show you all the different assignments available inside of your course. You may also scroll down inside of your course and find inside of a particular content blog, a listing for an assignment. Here my instructor has created separate groupings for my lecture materials and for the assignments associated with each week of content. The assignment that I want to complete is this Project Ideas assignment. You can see the icon on the top is showing a hand with a piece of paper in it, indicating that this is something that you are going to turn in.

Completing text assignments

Aside from the resources or information that your instructor is going to be providing to you inside of your Moodle course, they are also going to be providing you a bunch of different assignments that you can complete, so that you can be graded on. The first type of assignment that we are going to look at is the simple text based assignment. You can access all the assignments for your course from the Activities blog ion the left-hand side by clicking on the Assignments link. That will show you all the different assignments available inside of your course. You may also scroll down inside of your course and find inside of a particular content blog, a listing for an assignment. Here my instructor has created separate groupings for my lecture materials and for the assignments associated with each week of content. The assignment that I want to complete is this Project Ideas assignment. You can see the icon on the top is showing a hand with a piece of paper in it, indicating that this is something that you are going to turn in.

I will go ahead and click on the link for Project Ideas and the assignment appears on screen. The assignment simply says to submit my top three choices for research project ideas. Possible topics will be discussed during the first week's lecture. So I'll click the button that says Edit my submission at the bottom and then I'll just have a simple blank where I can go ahead and type in my response or if I have already typed it in to another document on my local computer such as using Microsoft Word or a Text Editor, I can simply copy and paste that text directly into this blank.

In this case, I'm simply going to go ahead and type in a response and let the instructor know that I'm interested in a project on Coral zooxanthellae symbiosis, eutrification of reefs, and fish cleaning stations. I'll go ahead and scroll down to the bottom of the screen and then simply click the Save changes button to submit this assignment to my instructor.

The text that I sent is now listed on this page from my assignment. If I need to make any edits, I can simply click the Edit my submission button and I can go back in and edit the text inside of that page. Otherwise, my assignment is complete and I can return back to the main course by clicking on my course's name in the upper left-hand corner.
