Quick Look: The Timed Drop Box

August 25, 2020 | 0 Minute Read

CoursePlus Quick Looks is a series of video-based posts that demonstrate some of the intermediate to advanced features of CoursePlus. The videos assume a basic level of knowledge with CoursePlus (signing in, setting up a site, adding files to the Online Library).

In this post in the CoursePlus Quick Looks video series, we show you the timed Drop Box, a special kind of Drop Box that limits how long students have to submit a file based on when a student “unlocks” the Drop Box. This can be a useful tool in administering exams or other time-limited activities. The student experience of using a timed Drop Box is also covered.
