What is ‘handin’ and how do i use it to turn in my assignment?

‘handin’ is a utility for turning in assignments to a course directory (/home/’course#’/handin/’Assignment’/username). Once turned in, the course professor/instructor or TAs can access the files, but neither you nor other students can see them. Running ‘handin’ will replace same-named files with each successive run.

One can now hand in their assignments using the online form:


or using the command line on the Linux machines:

handin class# Assignment# /path/to/local-file
