Submission of assignments is straightforward. Click the blue SUBMIT button next to the assignment, then upload the document. Be sure to click SUBMIT again to complete the process. You will then see a "digital receipt" which is your proof that the assignment was indeed submitted.

Problems submitting on turnitin? Your file format may be the culprit (check here). Apple/Mac users, .pages files are not accepted. As a user of Pages myself, I can attest that it is very easy to export .pages to .docx. Within Pages, pull down on the File menu to Export to, then select Word. That's it!
