Assignments (Dropbox)

NOTE: At UCalgary, the Assignments tool is referred to as Dropbox

The D2L Dropbox Folder is an assignment submission tool where students can upload completed work such as documents, graphic, audio and video files. A separate Dropbox Folder is required for each assessment item submission. Linking a Dropbox Folder to a Grade item allows scores and feedback to be transferred to the Gradebook, making it easy to keep track of student progress and other course assessment items.
