Enable Feedback Files in Moodle

This walkthrough is for instructors who would like to upload Assignment files or documents to students, particularly files that have instructor feedback in them. This walk through assumes you've already created your Assignment, though this process can also be done during the process of creating it (just skip to Step 3).
