Adding Assignments

Similar to the Drop Box feature in Blackboard, GoucherLearn’s assignment submission module allows you to electronically collect your students’ work and provide grades and feedback.  After students upload their files to the module, you can leave feedback comments and even upload additional files for the student to view.

If you’d like to learn how to add feedback to an assignment, here’s our how-to guide.

When your students upload their files to the assignment module, they will not be able to see or interact with other students’ assignments.  If you’d like a more interactive option for your students to be able to view and discuss assignments, consider creating a forum instead.


1. Go to your course page.  Turn editing on.

2. Click Add an activity or resource in the bottom right corner of the course header.
