Faculty Digital Dropbox
Note: This help page explains how to access The digital drop box, a tool in the Blackboard software package that students can use to send files to the instructor. This assumes you have created a blackboard account for your class. (You must be in an actual course to use this tool, not in the My EWU screen.)
Picking Up a Student Assignment
1. Login to Blackboard and enter the course you are teaching.
2. On the left side of the screen, click Control Panel.
3. Under Course Tools click Digital Drop box. You should now see any documents that have been added to the drop box. Documents appear in order of the date they were placed in the drop box, with the most recent documents at the top of the screen.
4. To access the student file, click the link with the document name. You may want to save the document to your local hard drive before adding any feedback. (Depending on your web browser configuration, the document may open up inside of a browser window instead of in Microsoft Word. If this occurs, you may save the document to your hard drive, open MS Word, and use the File > Open menu to access the document within Word.)
