What is this assignment for?

An instructor would use the assignment with advanced uploading of files to have students submit any paper/project they may have created in another piece of software (a word processor, for example).  For example, you may want students to upload a brief summary of a presentation they have prepared in Word and then a full PowerPoint presentation to accompany it.  While there is an option for a single file upload assignment, you can set the advanced uploading of files assignment to only allow one file as well.  Considering the advanced functionality of the advanced uploading of files assignment, the single file upload assignment is generally unnecessary. 

The benefits of the advanced file uploading assignment include multiple file submission, allowing students to type a message alongside their submission, and returning your own file as feedback.  In other words, if you want to comment directly on a student's paper using Track Changes or the commenting feature in Microsoft Office and re-upload this file as part of your feedback, you have this option.  You can also simply grade the assignment and provide feedback in the traditional Moodle interface.

The online support services team in the Callas Center for Teaching and Learning has moved all Moodle Support Guides over to the new Faculty Lounge in Moodle (Vancko Hall).
We will no longer host anything in Confluence, and instead will keep all Moodle guides in the new Faculty Lounge.
When you log into Vancko Hall (VH) and are on the main homepage you will see the Faculty Lounge button over on the right side. You can also find it on the main menu at the top of VH.
When you log into the Faculty Lounge you will see two modules:
  1. Moodle Support Guides: all the step-by-step guides to using Moodle.
  2. Video Tutorials: These support screencasts on 'how to' do various important functions in Moodle.
You can find the new Faculty Lounge directly with this link:
