External Assignments

There are two types of assignments an instructor can give. One is called an external assignment. This type of assignment is completed either outside of the online course environment in an external application such as Microsoft Word, Excel or Access, or manually entered as a TEXT or HTML file. When completing your assignment outside of the online course environment, you then upload the work to your student folder.
