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.

You can always turn on/off the Drop Box tool by going to Site Info and click on the Edit Tools link. Select the checkbox next to Drop Box and click Save. For detailed instructions on how to use the Drop Box tool, including how to download all student file submissions at once as opposed to downloading individual files, please refer to the online Quick Start Guide.
