How to create an assignment on Blackboard
Creating content area
On the top left side of the screen, there will be a "plus" icon. There, you will need to name the content area as Assignments and make sure to have "Available for Users" checked so that the students can view the assignments posted.
Adding the assignment
Once in the content area, navigate to Assessment which can be found under the title of the content area. Then proceed to click onto the Assignment section in the sub-menu.
