There is extensive guidance on working with Moodle's various features within Moodle itself. The links below will take you through to this guidance; Raven login is required.


Assignments: receiving and returning students' work in Moodle

The Moodle Assignment activity allows students to make online submissions for marking by teachers. Teachers can give students feedback as comments and files, or annotate pdf documents. Assignment grades will return to students via the Moodle Gradebook. 

Assignments can optionally be set up for blind marking, or assigned to particular teachers for grading using the workflow options.
