Generally, it is best to submit your assignment via your computer.

Step One: Make Sure You Have Saved the Document You Will Be Uploading. It is best to save the document as a Word file. However, other files types should work, including .rtf files. (Instructors generally prefer Word files, so they can easily add comments and “track changes.”) When saving the document, make sure to keep track of the folder you save it to.

Step Two: Click the “Plus” as shown in the middle of the image below:

Step Three: Select the File You Want to Upload. At this point, a dialog should open that allows you to select the file you want to open.

Once you have selected it, press the “Open” button.

Step Four: Press the upload button. You should now see the filename you selected on the screen. You will also see the button that says “Upload” in the bottom right corner of the upload area. Press that button.

Step Five: Submit the assignment. After the file is uploaded, you should see a button that says “Submit Assignment.” Click on that button to complete the process.

You should now see the following at the bottom of your screen:
