ICET QuickGuide: Uploading Assignments to Dropbox


The Desire2Learn Dropbox allows students to submit an assignment for grading and/or review. Instructors have the ability to assess and record a grade for the assignment. Once an assignment is assessed the student is able to review any feedback given by the instructor.


Read assignments carefully.  Requirements may vary from instructor to instructor and from one assignment to the next.
