Location: Course Tools > Dropbox


The Dropbox tool provides a central location where you and your students can submit and retrieve assignments and graded activities. Think of the Dropbox as a virtual Inbox and Outbox for course assignments where you can:

Your Dropbox/Inbox is also linked directly to the Gradebook, which makes it easy to open an assignment, grade it, and then record the student's grade directly into the Gradebook all from one place. Students can open a graded item from either the Dropbox or from the Gradebook and see their grade for that item. You can also attach files and documents to assignments when you return them to students. If you attach a file with a different extension than what is supported by the system, zip the files and then attach the .zip file.

To manage plagiarism, use the Turnitin feature to verify that the content in student submissions is authentic and not plagiarized.
