Assignments are common activities in Moodle. They will be designated by a pink icon. Depending on your instructor, an assignment might be a document that you need to upload(common) or it could be a text field you are to type in within the assignment(less common.) In most cases an assignment will accept all file type submissions, but please pay attention, your instructor can limit this to specific file type. For example they could limit it to a .doc, which would be a Microsoft Word document or they could specify they want documents converted to a PDF. 

Once your Professor has graded an assignment they can leave you feedback in the form of a comment or they can add comments to your document and re-upload it for you to review.
Below are instructions for uploading assignments in Moodle, as well as reviewing feedback from your instructor.

When you are ready to make a submission, you can either drag and drop your submission in the submission box or browse for a file or folder using the file picker.
