How to allow students to upload to Box, but not see?

At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, we have enterprise arrangements with Google and Box. We intend these third-party platforms to provide space for storage of large files.


One recurring question from faculty has been: Is there a way, within Canvas, to give students a link to a Google or Box folder... to let the students upload files, without allowing them to also see (and, technically, edit) other students' uploaded files?


At present, I cannot find a way to do that.


Related... Box does have an "Upload widget", that specifically allows this type of limited, one-direction file movement. But, the widget is in Javascript, and we can't get it to work in any Canvas HTML editor.


Has anyone figured out how to do this? Or, any suggestions?
