How do I create a dropbox for students to submit assignments online?
Hello Melynda Ruckels Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. To start off, Canvas does not use the terminology "dropbox". Rather, an "assignment" can be created in your course so that students can submit work to you. Here are some Guides that I think will be helpful:
How do I create an assignment?
How do I create an online assignment?
Assignments Overview (Instructors)
I hope this information will be helpful to you, Melynda.
Thank you Chris,
Ok, got that figured out. I do see that there is not a place for students to upload this assignment on this page…..I searched around and see that it is under the Grades tab for students…..though the dilemma I now have is…Where are these documents stored for me to grade?
Hi Melynda Ruckels...
I do see that there is not a place for students to upload this assignment on this page
Are you referring to this website that you and I are using right now? If so, this is the global Canvas Community website and not the Canvas LMS (Learning Management System). Your school would have a URL for Canvas something like SchoolName.instructure.com where the Canvas Community site can be found at https://community.canvaslms.com/ Students would upload their assignments to the assignments you created in your Canvas course and not here in the Canvas Community website.
Where are these documents stored for me to grade?

I hope this additional information helps, Melynda.
