Submitting an Assignment

This guide demonstrates how to submit an assignment within MyLO. Students can upload their assignments using common file types such as .docx, .xlsx, and .pdf.
Note: If your lecturer asks you to upload an excerpt of a discussion forum, you will need to copy and paste the relevant content into a Word document and upload the saved Word doc to the Assignment folder. Please ensure you check with your lecturer on their requirements.
