OIT recommends downloading all student submissions for Dropbox folders, in order to avoid any unforeseen technical issues. The following documentation demonstrates how to download all submissions in a single Dropbox folder.
Log into your course and from the Assignments drop-down menu click Dropbox.
Click on the assignment from which you wish to download submissions.
Check the Select all rows checkbox.
*Note: If you have a large class size you may need to adjust the users displayed per page. This is done by selecting a number of users from the per page drop-down menu, located in the submissions list header. The maximum number of users that can be displayed on a page is 200. If a class is larger than 200 students, you will need to navigate to all pages and repeat this process to get all user submissions.
Click on the download icon, as shown in the image to the left.
Click the file link, in the pop-up window, and define a save location.
*Important Note: All downloaded user submissions will automatically assign a unique identifying number to the beginning of every file name. This is done in order to make the process of providing feedback within the student submission and uploading the feedback into D2L seamless.
