Creating a Blackboard assignment in a Content Area (i.e. Assessment) creates a location for students to submit assessment. Students can submit a wide range of file types including Word, PDF, PowerPoint, Excel and multimedia files using the Blackboard assignment tool. Students can also submit links to assignments produced online (i.e. a Padlet, website or ePortfolio Collaboration assignment).

Assignments can also be assigned to groups that have already been set up (refer to the Groups tool page). Group assignments only have to be submitted by one member of the group and all members will automatically receive the same mark in Grade Centre (this can be overridden).

3. Assignment Files (optional)

You can use this function to attach the assignment question, instructions or resources to the assignment submission link.

  1. Click on the Browse My Computer button.
  2. Select and open the required files.

Tip: To remove a file, click on the Do not attach link next to the file.
