News and Updates: Spring 2009

Class Assignment Dropbox, Student View: Previously, students could load a file to the assignment dropbox, but couldn't view the files they'd loaded there. We've updated this page so that now a student viewing the assignment dropbox will see an area to the right of the page that lists the files they've loaded and when they were loaded. Students are cautioned that "Once you have uploaded a file to the dropbox, your instructor can rename or delete the file, so the following list may not include all the files you've ever uploaded."

Add or copy Assignments and Materials to multiple Writing Studio class sites: When you open the page to create a new assignment or add a new item to the materials section, you will see a list at the bottom of the page that includes all of your currently shown classes. Simply check the boxes for the classes where you'd like the item to be posted before pushing the "Add Assignment/Item" button. To copy an item that already exists, simply select the "Copy" option from the right-side options menu for that item. Keep in mind, however, that when you want to update or delete an assignment or item, you'll need to do so for each individual class.
