Students can now post a link or text directly into the Assignment submission area!

In the past, if your assignment required students to submit a link to something they created, they would have to put the link in a Word document and upload it.  Now there is a setting to allow them to add the link right on the Assignment Submission page, skipping the extra step of the Word doc!

Note: this only works on newly created Assignments

  1. In your OAKS class, go to Grades > Assignments
  2. Create a new assignment by clicking on New Folder
  3. On the Submission & Completion box on the right, scroll down and click on Submission Type
  4. Under the dropdown, click on Text submission
  5. Finish setting up your assignment then click Save and Close

Instead of a File Upload button, the students will see a text box they can type into and submit:
