Drop Box: Paper Assignment Made Easy

If your course has primarily paper assignments, an alternative to using the Assignments tool is to use the Drop Box, a new tool available in CourseWork v5. Simply post the description of the assignment in the Materials, Schedule, or Syllabus tool. Then use the Drop Box to collect and return students’ paper submissions. Each student in the course has a folder in the Drop Box. Only the instructor can view and access all the student folders in the course. Students can only see and access their own folder.
