How Do I Add Images to My Assignment Submission?

You can add images to your assignment, either as part of a text entry assignment, or as your entire submission.

Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are uploaded into your user files but are not counted against your user quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file.

Note: Your instructor will decide what type of submissions are allowed. One or both of these options may not be available.
