Using Dropbox for student work and grading – These services in Dropbox make it possible to collect and grade student work digitally:
• www.dropitto.me lets students upload their work through a secure URL. Once the teacher’s account is linked to the website, files automatically appear in the teacher’s Dropbox.
• www.sendtodropbox.com is similar: students e-mail work to a new e-mail address and then it appears in the teacher’s Dropbox. An added advantage is saving lots of paper!
