1. In order to create an assignment, you will first need to add a “content area.” Add a content area by selecting the small plus sign in the top left sidebar.

  2. Name the new content area and select it from the sidebar.

  3. You will now be able to use the “Assessment” or “Tools” tabs to create a variety of assignment types. The most typical would be assessment -> assignment, which will allow you to create a spot for student file submission. Depending on your assignment type, you will see a variety of customizable options, including due date, grading choices, number of allowed submission attempts, etc.
