A Submission activity allows learners to submit their work. The task of creating, writing, or making something is one of the most effective ways for learners to learn.

Types of submissions

There is a wide range of options for types of work that learners can submit. We currently support the following submission types:

πŸ“ Text

πŸ–Ό Images

πŸ“Ž Files

πŸ”— Links

πŸ“‚ Uploads from Google drive

πŸ“Ή Video recordings

πŸ–₯ Screen recordings

In the activity settings menu, you can control which type(s) of submission you allow learners to submit.. You can also decide whether learners can submit only one attachment or if they can submit multiple attachments and decide if learners can edit their work after it's been submitted.

How learners complete a Submission activity

After attaching their work and clicking Submit, the activity automatically completes for learners.

How instructors can view submissions

From the submission activity, click the View submissions button. You'll see a list of your learners, the status of their submission activity, and the date of submission.

Click to select a learner and see their work. You can filter learners by tags, sort learners, or use the search feature to find a specific learner. You'll also see any review activities associated with the submission.

You can review the progress of learners as a whole for the submission activity on the Summary page.

How to download submissions

On paid plans, you can bulk download the submissions from a Submission activity. On the bottom of the page where you view submissions, select the Download all submissions button and a ZIP file containing the submissions will be sent to your email.

Ways to use a Submission activity

Here are 4 examples of how you can use a submission activity in a course:

  1. Reflection: Learners could share a short written reflection on a prompt to encourage them to reflect on a concept. Instructors could view the results without offering formal responses or individual feedback.

  2. Instructor Review: Learners could submit something for instructors to offer feedback and comments on. In this case, you would include an Instructor review activity after the submission activity.

  3. Peer Review: Learners could submit something for other learners in the course to see and offer feedback and comments about. In this case, you would include a Peer review activity after the submission activity.

  4. Self Review: Learners could submit something that they can reflect on later on in the course. They could share responses about how their insights may have changed or stayed the same after learning some content in the course, or they could offer suggestions for how they could improve upon their initial response. In this case, you would include a Self review activity sometime after the submission activity.

Completion & Visibility settings

You can use completion and visibility settings to add specific rules for who can view and access this activity, including setting deadlines and prerequisites. You can see details about these rules here.
