About Assignments

Instructors can use Assignments in D2L Brightspace to create folders for students to submit documents. There are a variety of submission types available.

  • File Submission – Create an assignment folder so students are capable of submitting any type of file.
  • Text Submission – Create an assignment folder so students write their response in a built-in text-editor.
  • On Paper Submission – Create an assignment that doesn’t require an online submission. It acts as a placeholder for directions and can be linked to the gradebook and still allow feedback online.
  • Observed in Person – Create an assignment that doesn’t require an online submission. It acts as a placeholder for directions and can be linked to the gradebook.
Instructors can keep the folder open or open the folder for a date range.
  • What is required: A D2L Brightspace course and an Assignment link on the course navbar
