Yorkshare Assignment Submission

Yorkshare Assignment Submission

Yorkshare (the VLE) has two different assignment submission tools that can be used for electronic file submission:

  • Yorkshare (Blackboard) Standard Assignment tool – usually for formative work.
  • Anonymous Assignment tool – for exam number-based summative work.

Standard Assignment Tool

With the Standard Assignment tool, documents that are uploaded to Yorkshare can be marked within the VLE itself using a feature called ‘inline grading’. This enables you to add annotations to the file and type feedback to the student, with everything contained within the Yorkshare module site. There are also options to download files submitted to this tool and mark offline.

The E-Learning Development Team are able to provide guidance on end-to-end workflows for assignment submission for both administrative and academic staff and are happy to consult with departments to help figure out what the best option will be. Contact us at vle-support@york.ac.uk to arrange a consultation.
