Attach resources to the assignment by selecting Add resources.
During this step, add a document from your personal OneDrive, computer, or create a blank Word (.docx), Excel (.xlsx), or PowerPoint (.pptx) document to hand out to your students.
The default for the file will be students can't edit, which means the document is read-only. This is a great option for reference materials.
Select 'more options' button > 'students edit their own copy' if you'd like each student to edit their own document and turn it in for a grade.
You can add up to five files for students to edit. The total number of resources you can add to an assignment is ten, whether editable or non-editable.
Select due date and time
For more assignment timeline options, select 'edit'. Here, you can customise when your assignment will be posted to students and when it will close for turn-ins. By default, no close date will be selected, which allows students to turn in assignments late.
