Now let's go ahead and look at completing some assignments that may be given to us inside if our Moodle course, and the first type of assignment to have a look is a text assignment. If I scroll down to the bottom of my Week 1 block for this course I can see that there's an assignment that I need to complete called Research Project Ideas. I can tell it's an assignment because there is a little paper with a hand icon holding the paper to hand it in. I will go ahead and click on the Research Project Ideas and I can see the description as to what I need to do. Submit a brief description of a possible research project that I would like to complete during my field studies in Belize.
It tells me that I have not currently submitted anything yet, and there's a button for add a submission. I will simply hit the Add submission button, and then I get a standard editor to be able to edit some text in here. Now I've gone ahead and copied some text to my clipboard, so I will just paste it in with Command+V or Ctrl+V, and I will just paste that text in. It just simply says my hypothesis is Coral polyp density decreases with increasing depth of the coral colony. Now obviously if I was going to flesh this project idea out, I will go ahead and type in a little bit more information, but for demonstration purposes this should work just fine for us.
You can select text from just about any word processor, copy it and then paste it into one of these fields or you can type directly into the field. When you're finished entering the text, all you need to do is going down to the bottom and click the Save changes button. Then we can see that my changes have been saved and I can see the text that I just entered into here. If I need to edit my submission I can click on the Edit submission button and go back into that page. Well, this completes that assignment. So I will simply return back to my course by clicking on the Biology432 link, back up here in the breadcrumbs.
