    • Write Submission: Click Write Submission and begin typing.
    • Attach a File: Click Browse My Computer and select the file to attach.
  2. When finished with your submission, click Submit. Only do this if you have completed your entire submission. Most assignments in Blackboard only allow for one submission.
