Uploading Files to Drop Box in ReggieNet

ReggieNet includes a feature called Drop Box which allows students and instructors to share files through a private file drop folder.

Before You Begin

The Drop Box tool in ReggieNet allows instructors and students to share files through a private file drop folder. Each member in a ReggieNet course automatically receives a file drop folder. For more information on ReggieNet review the following article:

Private Drop Box

A file drop folder is private and can only be accessed by the student and instructor. One student cannot access another student’s file drop. However, the instructor can access all file drop folders for the course. Instructors cannot associate grades with files uploaded using File Drop. If you are an instructor and want students to upload files (such as Word documents) so they can be graded, use the Assignments tool instead.

This article explains how to upload files using the Drop Box tool in ReggieNet. These instructions are appropriate for both students and instructors.
