1. HowTo Submit an Assignment


There are many different ways to turn in assignments to Moodle, but the most common way is when an instructor creates an Assignment Activity. This activity allows students to either a) upload a file (essay, photo, etc.) or b) type directly into the Moodle interface. This video will demonstrate both methods.

In essence, you must:
  1. Login to the MHU Moodle web site
  2. Scroll down to the 'My courses' area, and click the desired course
  3. Find and select the Assignment Activity in question - contact your instructor if you cannot find it
  4. Click 'Add submission' and either a) upload your file or b) enter your assignment in the text box
This brief video (2:33) will illustrate the process:

2. HowTo Post to a Forum


Moodle forums are a great way to facilitate discussion between students and instructors. Often instructors will have you post to a forum - and maybe reply to your peers - as a class requirement.

  2. Find and select the Forum indicated by your instructor
  3. Click the 'Add a new discussion topic' and type your post
  4. Click the 'Post to forum' button when finished
To reply to a forum post:
  1. Login to MHU's Moodle site and click on the desired course
  2. Find and select the Forum indicated by your instructor
  3. Find the post to which you would like to reply, and click the 'reply' link.
  4. Enter your post, and click 'Submit'
