Choose Online Assignment and click Next to proceed.

Set the deadline by which work should be submitted.
Allow late submissions
Tick the box to allow late submissions.
Late Due Date
Where late submissions are allowed, set a Late Due Date – the time after which students can no longer submit.
For obvious reasons, this should be after the Due Date.
Enforce time limit
For Take Home Exams, you will almost certainly want to tick this box, to set a time limit.
Maximum time permitted
If the assessment is time-limited, enter the Maximum Time Permitted in minutes.
Do not tick the box to enable group submission.
When done, press Create Assignment.
