NILE Assignment Submission Guide for Ultra Courses

Information for Students

Making a journal or discussion post

As part of your course, you may be asked to write an individual journal, to reflect on your learning, or you may be asked to take part in an online discussion. Either may be to help you engage and participate in the course, and may be as an assessment, with the score being part of your provisional grade. In all cases, you should allow yourself enough time to write your contribution, read the instructions carefully, and you should use a recommended browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Edge) on a stable internet connection. For step-by-step guidance, please visit the Blackboard Help page links below.
