About Dropbox

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

You can view users’ submissions and submission dates in the Folder Submissions area. This eliminates the need to collect assignments and helps you track when files were submitted.

Create categories to group and organize your dropbox folders. You can also restrict access to dropbox folders by date and time, group membership, or special access permissions. Each folder’s Folder Submissions area has search and filter options that enable you to find users’ submitted files by username, submission history, and amount of feedback they have received.

Note: Students have the ability to set automatic notifications for this course tool.  Read more about the notification tool here: Notifications
