You can download and grade items from your Dropbox. Just remember that when you first create your Dropbox you must remember to both assign it a due date and enter points in the Gradebook Settings.

  • If you don't assign your Dropbox your students will be able to see it (assuming you've made it visible) but will not be able to upload documents.
  • If you assign it but don't make it worth any points then your students will be able to upload assignments, but you will not be able to see or download the submissions.

For more information on how to add a Dropbox to a LaunchPad unit, please read the help article Adding a Dropbox to a LaunchPad Unit. To download your students' submissions and upload a mark-up, follow the steps below.
