Students can submit files up to 25 megabytes (MB) in size through the dropbox feature of LaunchPad.

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 use a dropbox to grade student submissions, please read the help article How do I use a dropbox to grade student submissions?.
