    When setting restricted file types in an assignment, if one enters a document extension in a manner that the system will not understand, it would be useful if an error message appeared. If it was more explicit in regards to how the file extensions should be written, many users would avoid their students not being able to upload files. The particular formatting should be emphasized in the example given. As it is, the example just reads as what you mean by "file types," not that one needs to enter those in that particular manner.
