D2L Dropbox

Many of your courses will require that you submit papers or other types of assignments to your instructor via the Dropbox tool. The Dropbox tool enables you to submit assignments in the Learning Environment, eliminating the need to mail, fax, or email your work to instructors. Simply upload your submission to the appropriate dropbox folder and submit.

To access the dropbox tool, select the Activities drop-down menu on the course navbar, then select Dropbox.

Submitting to the Dropbox

To submit to the Dropbox:

  1. On the Dropbox Folders page, select the folder to which you want to submit.
  2. Select Add a File to browse for the file you want to submit. You can attach files from your local computer or storage device or a group locker (if applicable).
  3. Enter any Comments you want to submit with the file.
    Note: You must attach a file to a dropbox submission to successfully submit. You cannot just submit the comment field to the dropbox.
  4. Select Submit.
