MBC Essay Assignment Workflow 8:30- 9:15CedarThere are 2 main ways to use My Big Campus for student essays?
1. Use MBC Docs: Students write (or copy-and-paste) their essays into an MBC Doc, then share it with the teacher. This works much like a Google Doc, where teacher and student collaborate on one document in the cloud.
2. Upload word processing files: Students write their essays using a word processing application such as Pages or MS Word, then upload the file to a MBC Simple Assignment. The teacher downloads the files, makes comments, then re-uploads the files back to the students.
This session covers the workflow for both.
