Drop Box: Overview
What it does
The Drop Box feature allows instructors and students to share
documents within a private folder for each student. The Drop Box works
like Resources to allow you to upload many types of files and many
files at a time. The Drop Box also allows nested folders (folders
Progress reports: Instructors can use the Drop Box
tool to provide private progress reports to each student in the class.
Adding participants: When you add participants or
students to a worksite, either automatically or manually, they will
have Drop Box folders by default (if the Drop Box tool was specified
when the site was first created).
Things to consider
- A new Drop Box item will automatically go into the folder that you
have open when you create the item.
- With the exception of plain text and HTML documents, the Revise
option only allows you to revise the information about a Drop Box item,
such as its name, description, or copyright information. You cannot
revise the contents of a document or file within a Drop Box.
- Make sure you know the laws and policies regarding the use of
copyrighted material. For information, see Posting copyrighted materials online.
