Drop Box (not the file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc.) allows instructors and students to share documents within a private folder for each student.
DropBox is not intended for individual student assignment work, the TRACS Assignments tool is designed for this functionality.
Drop Box works similarly to the Resources tool to allow you to upload many types of files and also allows for nested folders (folders within folders). Drop Box folders are created for students and participants automatically when the tool is added. The instructor can view, delete, and modify items in any student’s Drop Box.
Drop Box folders for participants who have dropped the course or have been removed from the site are automatically hidden from view. If you would like to see that information, select the Show/Hide Inactive Participants at the top of the screen.
