Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How it Works!

How do I submit my assignment in eLearn?

Make sure your document is on a compatible format. We recommend PDF files, but Word docs also work. Go to the assignment submission page created by the teacher under the course. Click on add submission to select the document from your computer (or drag and drop) and hit submit. Most of the times you can edit your submission a couple of minutes after you first submitted it.
