D2L Dropbox: Tips and Tricks

D2L’s dropbox tool allows for students to easily submit assignments to instructors electronically.  Here are some helpful tips to make uploading files to D2L hassle free!

Make uploading-handwritten-white-chalk-blackboard-drawing-download-bar-43659103sure the correct file is selected:  It sounds simple enough, but the easiest way to cause confusion is to accidentally submit your English paper to your Comm110 dropbox. Always double check that the file you selected is the one you want.

Don’t upload from your phone:  You may not have known this, but you can upload files from your phone to dropbox!  Uploading from your phone may seem convenient, especially when you’re in a rush and on the go, but it can be inconsistent. It’s always best to upload from a desktop or laptop with a stable internet connection. If you, or someone you know, doesn’t have access to one, check out our blog on Andersen Media Lab!

Don’t use special characters:  If you’re submitting a file from a Mac, there are someScreen Shot 2017-09-25 at 1.03.57 PM characters that you can use in filenames that you can’t use on Windows. You’re able to use these characters on a Mac, but if you tried to use them in Windows, you wouldn’t be able to even make the file. These characters are   \ / : * ? ” < > |.  The dropbox will not allow any of these characters to be in a filename. If one or more of them are, you will get an error message, and the file won’t upload. So when working on a Mac, be careful not to use special characters.

Make sure your file was uploaded:  After your file has been successfully uploaded to dropbox, you should immediately get an email receipt in your student email. If you check your email and there’s no receipt in the inbox, make sure to try and upload the file again.

If you run into problems trying to upload a file to a dropbox, please contact D2L Support.
