Submitting to Moodle

Just about all work at York St John University is submitted via Moodle.  Essays may be uploaded to a Moodle submission box or to TurnItIn via Moodle. Mahara ePortfolio submissions are also through Moodle. Videos are usually uploaded to the YSJ Media Library or YouTube and then a link is submitted to a Moodle text box.
