    This is a re-creation of Paul Rettey's original idea: Display file upload progress bar for students uploading assignment submissions, which was archived. I believe this is an important UI/UX consideration. 

     

    From here on is the text/images copied directly from the original idea...

    At the moment when a student submits a file for an assignment there is no file upload progress displayed, instead students see the button 'Submitting...'

    If a student is submitting a media file that is quite large it would be very useful to the student to see a file upload progression bar. This will tell the student the file is being uploaded or if the upload has stalled.

     

    Something like this would be useful:

    Perhaps with numerical feedback indicating speed of upload / amount uploaded / amount remaining. 

     

    Thank you
