Assignment Dropbox Overview
Learners use the Assignment Dropbox tool to write or upload and submit assignments (recommended practice.) This eliminates the need to mail, fax, or email their work to instructors (not recommended.) Paper submissions and observed in person assignments are also available and do not require file submissions to be made in Brightspace Learning Environment.
Instructors use the Assignment Dropbox tool to see users’ submission times, view submissions on the Evaluate Submission page, associate assignments to rubrics and competencies, and return submissions with grades and feedback. For assignments that included file submissions, instructors can download the submissions to their computer for review offline.
In the Submissions area for file and text submissions, instructors can view users' submissions and submission dates, eliminating the need to collect assignments and making it easy to track when files were submitted.
Instructors can create categories to group and organize assignments. They can also restrict access to assignments by date and time, group membership, or special access permissions.
