We've got some students who are submitting rather large files for assignments (over 1GB). The problem is that some of them have slow network connections which mean that it's taking them a long time to upload the files. Would it be possible to do one (or both) of the following:
1) Have the ability to extend the deadline for the assignment (potentially only by a couple of hours) without announcing that the deadline has changed so that we can cater for people who have slow network connections.
2) Provide a mechanism (option when setting up an assignment) that allows files that have started to upload before the deadline to continue uploading.
