online dropboxes where students can submit work for you to
grade and/or comment on.
Moodle offers you 4 different options for Assignments:
Upload a Single File: This type allows a
student to upload a file (for example a word-processed document
or an image) for the teacher to grade and provide comments. If
you have a single assignment you want to collect online, this
is the type to use.
Advanced Uploading of Files: This allows for a
student to upload multiple files. If you wish to have a dropbox
that stays open for classwork throughout the year, rather than
just for a single assignment, this is the type to use.
Online Text: Rather than uploading a file, the
students write directly into a blank page provided by this
Assignment. This is then graded by the teacher.
Offline Activity: This is rarely used, but
assumes that the work was done by the student offline, but the
teacher wants to grade it online.
