Preferred File Format for Attachments

Refer to the assignment or activity requirements in your Moodle course to determine what type of file you are required to submit.

To prevent the problems that can result from software incompatibilities, save and send all of your Moodle attachments for your course(s) as .rtf or .doc or .docx or .xls or .xlsx or .ppt or .pptx.

Unless your instructor specifically requests or permits it, do not save and send your assignment submissions as .pdf files. Instructors often provide feedback directly in student submission documents, but this is generally not possible with a .pdf file.
