About Dropbox

The Dropbox tool enables you to submit assignments through the Learning Environment, eliminating the need to mail, fax, or email assignments. Simply upload your assignment to the appropriate folder.

You can set up folders that users can submit their assignments to. This eliminates the need to collect assignments and helps you track when assignments are submitted.

The Dropbox tool allows you to see users’ submission times, download assignments to your computer, view submissions with the document viewer on the Leave Feedback page, associate dropbox folders to rubrics and competencies, and return submissions with grades and feedback.

You can set up separate dropbox folders for each assignment and restrict access to the folders by date and time, group membership, or special access permissions. Each dropbox folder's search and filter options enable you to find users' submitted files by username, submission history, and amount of feedback they have received.
