Video: Uploading attachments to assignments

The next type of assignment that I would like to show you is an assignment where we have to upload a file. If I scroll down in this course I can see that in Week 3 I have got an assignment called Thesis Statement. I will go ahead and click on that Assignment link and this assignment says that I need to upload a brief 1-2 page summary of a research topic and there is additional criteria that I need to follow. I can go ahead and click on the Upload a file link. Then I need to click the button that says Choose a file. I'm taken into a standard File picker and there are a lot of different options for different types of ways to be able to access different files.

I can go ahead and click on the Upload a file link. Then I need to click the button that says Choose a file. I'm taken into a standard File picker and there are a lot of different options for different types of ways to be able to access different files.

The types of options that you have will be dependent on what resources have been set up on your particular Moodle server. The most basic one though is the Upload a file. If you click on that link the right- hand side of your page should look something like this. There should be a Browse button that you can click on, and then you can browse out to your local hard drive. In this case, I have got a folder on my desktop called elvis. I will go into that folder and there I have got a file called Thesis Statement.doc. It's a Word document that simply has a single line of text in it. I will go ahead and hit the Open button and then hit Upload this file.

My Thesis Statement document uploads into my course and I can click the button for Save changes. My page refreshes and tells me that the file uploaded successfully and then it refreshes back to the assignment itself and I can see all the detailed information about the assignment and I can see my Thesis Statement. I can then go ahead and return back to my course by clicking on the Biology432 link in the upper left-hand corner. That's one way to hand in assignments. In the next movie, I'll show you how to use the My Private file section to upload lots of files into your Private Files section that you will have access to.
