The preferred method for collecting assignments is using Assignment Submissions in Blackboard. Using OneDrive is an alternative solution for receiving assignment submissions. Assignment Submissions through Blackboard allows you to use their inline grading tool, but for more robust feedback, Word may be your preferred tool.
Create a folder for the submissions:
- In OneDrive, select New and then Folder
- Name your Folder
- Right click on the folder or select the three vertical dots to bring up a menu
- Select Request Files
- Enter a name for the files you are requesting, this is the name that students will see.
- Click Next
- You will have two options for requesting files. You can either copy the link and share it in Blackboard or in a custom email to your students, or you can enter the students' email address and have a request email sent directly to them.
When students start uploading their files, you will receive an email notification. You will also see their submission in the folder you created. The name that they enter when they submit the file will be added to the beginning of their file name.
