Submitting an assignment to a D2L dropbox from the locker
This document describes how to submit an assignment to a dropbox in D2L from the locker. This is especially useful for assignments that require students to submit a web address or other product that is not a traditional file (such as word, powerpoint, etc).
Click "New File."
Give your file a name
If you are submitting a link to a web address, click the "add link" icon.
Paste the web address for the link in the box. Give the link a title (the title is what the blue hyper-text will say in the document). Then select the "new window" button. This will ensure that your instructor will be able to open your link.
Go to the dropbox in your course where you would like to submit the document you just created.
Select add file
Choose to add a file from your locker in the menu on the left hand side.
Check the box next to the document you created in your locker and press "add"
Press the "submit" button and you are done.
