courseTools_assignments
 
> There are TWO WAYS to submit an assignment either typing in answers directly in the Submission Box or typing answers using a word processing program such as MS Word then Attach the File back to the assignment.

> Caution: When typing in answers in the Assignment Submission Box do not be idle for more than 10 minutes. Web Browsers DO NOT register typing as an activity. If you're typing a submission within Assignments, Assessments, or Discussions for longer than 10 minutes, the session may timeout when the Submit or Post button is clicked. This means that you may lose your work. It is recommended to first type your answers using a word processing program such as MS Word or Notepad then paste into the Submission Box.
