Assignments: What are submission assignments and how do I post to them?

Quick Answer: Unlike forums, the Submission Assignments will be submitted directly to your teacher.  This is often used for longer writing projects, rough drafts, or final drafts of work.  When you click the submit button you will get a text box to work with just like when you reply in a forum.  However, you only have a certain amount of time to write in that text box before Moodle will time out and you will lose all of your work.  To avoid that situation we recommend that you first do your work in Word or Google Docs and then copy and paste the work over into the Moodle submission box.  After you submit the assignment it will be available for your teacher to grade and give you feedback.  It is important to check back for the feedback your teacher will leave you so that you can incorporate their suggestions in your future work.

Avatar: How do I add/change my avatar/profile picture?

Quick Answer: On the right hand side of your screen you will find various useful areas we refer to as Blocks.  To change your profile picture, or avatar, you can follow this path:

In the Navigation Block -> click My Profile -> click View Profile -> once you see your profile look in the Administration Block -> Edit Profile -> scroll down in the main page to click on User Picture -> You can then drag and drop the file you want to use, or click the Add File (piece of paper with a +) button at the top of the submission box -> click Update Profile at the bottom of the page to save your changes.
