Submitting a file to Dropbox

  • There are multiple steps to the process of submitting a file to a D2L dropbox.  If all the steps are not completed, the file will not be submitted successfully. Here is the sequence of steps:

·       Click [Add a File]
·       In the popup window, click [Browse]
·       Navigate to the desired file and double-click
·       Click [Upload]
·       Click [Submit] 
(Students will receive a confirmation email when file has uploaded)
  • Students should use a file format (e.g., Word) that you have specifically prescribed, so that you will be able to read their submissions when you download them.
  • Both instructors and students should use file names that contain only the normal letters of the English alphabet, in addition to spaces, dashes, or underscores.  Including even a single odd character – e.g., ampersand, apostrophe, pound sign, exclamation mark – in the filename can make it impossible to download. Finally, there must be only ONE period (.) in the filename – located between the descriptive text and the file type (e.g., file1.doc).
