Course authors and coaches can then view and return all submitted and corrected files. With an enabled revision phase, coaches can even place revision requests for their participants. Assessment can be carried out either directly in the course element or by means of the assessment tool.

Subscribe to the course element in the course view. Whenever a course participant submits a file you will receive a corresponding e-mail or a notification in your personal menu, section "Subscriptions." The notifications is only sent if the action is finished. Alternatively you can subscribe for all uploads and changes of assessible course elements in the assessment tool.
