Creating a Dropbox
Step 1: On the Course Home Page, find the Faculty Course Tools Widget. Under the "Teach" drop-down menu, click “Dropbox”.
Step 2: Click “New Folder” (assignments are collected under corresponding folders). You will need a folder for each assignment.
Step 3: Give the folder a name – usually the same name as the assignment.
Step 4: If you want to grade the assignment and have the grades appear in the gradebook, you’ll need to select a grade item from the dropdown menu. If you don’t see the grade item, create one by selecting “New Grade Item.” Select or create a category to organize the dropbox folder within.
Step 5: Assign a point value for the assignment, type in any instructions, and click Save.
Step 6: If you want the dropbox available for only a certain period of time, click the “restrictions” tab and enter the date information.
