Q: How do I use my iPad to submit answers to assignments?
A: There are 2 methods you can use if you are an iPad user and want to submit an answer to an assignment in Itslearning:
1) The obvious - write the answer direct in Itslearning
2) Using an app to write the assignment answer
1) The obvious - write the answer and submit it from inside Itslearning:
Log in to Itslearning, go to the actual course and choose the assignment.
You will see the assignment and the "Submit answer" button.
Click the "Submit answer" to bring forward the text-editor in Itslearning where you should write the answer.
Click into the text field - where its says "Click to enter text" - and the editor should open in a new window, and enable you to write the assignment answer direct. When finished click the OK button and the text will be shown in the main editor window in Itslearning.
When you are finished, click "Submit" to send in you answer.
And you are done.
2) Using an app to write the assignment answer:
An other solution is to use an app that lets you write text on the iPad.
You can use any app that lets you write text for this methode, we have been using Pages.
To use this solution, start Pages (or the app of your choice) to be prepared for writing the assignment.
When the Pages has loaded, double-click on the "Home"-button on the iPad to bring up the Menu-bar.
Start Safari and log on to Itslearning.
Go the the course you should submit the assignment, and choose the assignment.
Now you can read what the assignment is all about.
Double-click on the Home-button again and you can switch back to Pages.
(Chose Pages in the Menu-bar and Pages will be active).
Write you answer to the assignment, switching back and forth if needed to confirm that your answer is what the assignment is all about.
When finnish writing, select all text in Pages, copy it, and then switch back to Safari and Itslearning- as described above.
Click on Submit Answer in the assignment in Itslearning and Itslearning start the Editor where you should write you answer.
Now click in the text-field - where its says "Click to enter text" - and you will get a new window with the editor for iPad.
Click in the text field to activate it and when it is active paste in the text from Pages.
Click OK and the text will be placed in the Editor in Itslearning.
Click "Submit" and you are done!
