If the students are required to submit their homework as a text or file, e.g. programm source code, follow these instructions:
Click the "Start" button in the top left corner and select the "Add homework" option.

Type the descripture of HW and check the due date. Tick the "Allow students to submit text or files" checkbox.

The system creates an open question for you. Students can submit their elaboration to this question.

Where can I find the files that students uploaded to HW?

You can also assign this type of homework in the mobile app:
