Digital Drop Box



The Digital Drop Box enables Students to exchange files with the Instructor. Digital Drop Box is only available as a Course Tool, it is not an Institution Tool.


Note: A file added to the Drop Box will not appear to the Instructor until it has been sent. Once a file has been sent to the Instructor, it cannot be removed from the Drop Box.
