Submitting Assignments


If your instructor is using Blackboard's assignment feature, you will be able to download and submit documents pertaining to a specific assignment via an assignment link. Please note that each instructor may choose to receive documents differently, and not all instructors will use Blackboard's assignment feature.


Special Notes:

1. By default, you are allowed only once to submit assignments. If you accidently submitted a wrong assignementonce, you need to contact your instructor so that your instructor can reset the assignemnt and you can re-submit the assignemnt.

2. DON'T USE any special character in your file name, such as "#","&"," %","!", "$", etc. These symbol are normally reserved for system, misusing them could casue the errors on Blackboard.


A Blackboard assignment can be identified by the notebook icon with a green checkmark, and will always have a link to the assignment below the instructions.
