Submitting an Assignment

All Open Learning courses in Blackboard Learn 9.1 use the Assignment tool for assignment submission. Please follow these instructions for submitting an assignment in Blackboard Learn 9.1

In most cases, your assignment instructions are presented separately from where you submit them. Although you can type your assignment directly into the Assignment Tool it is recommended that you do your work offline, save your assignment in a file or files and attach file(s) to submit.

Before starting submission process, review any specific instructions provided in your course material on formatting of submissions.

Step 1: Go to Assignments Area of your Course

This area can be accessed from Left hand navigation bar or from your Course Home page.
