Writing Your Assignment

The purpose of the assignments is for you to demonstrate that you are (1) reflecting on what you have learnt so far in this course and (2) applying what you have learnt to your own life. 

Please ensure that your assignments contain only your words.  Text copied and pasted from other sources is regarded as plagiarism and will result in your assignment being returned for resubmission.  

If you click "Save" in your assignment, it submits your assignment.  The LMS does not allow you to work on your assignment over time. 

Type your assignment in a word processing document such as MS Word or Google Docs. Paste your assignment text into the text box using CTRL + V. The assignment modules are not set to allow document uploads.  Please copy and paste your assignment text into the text box and submit.  

Saving Assignments

There is no temporary save function for assignments. This means you cannot work on your assignment online over time. 

Assignment Attachments 

Do not attempt to upload documents inside the assignment text boxes.  If the programme allows for assignment uploads, a document upload button appears instead of a text box.  If there is no document upload button, assignments may not be uploaded for that programme. 

Feedback on Assignments

Your assignment will be marked, and either accepted, or returned to you for further work.
