Submission folders allow students to submit assignments through the D2L course site. Submission folders can be set up to accept files submitted by individual students or a group of students.
Note: Using one of these settings is recommended in order to use the grading interface to provide students with qualitative feedback on their work. This is still the case even if the Grades tool is not being used and/or the assignment is not being counted as part of the overall course grade.
Note: While D2L will play .m4a audio files, there is no way to shut off their autoplay feature. To avoid issues with more than one .m4a file playing at one time, the file should be converted to .mp3
Note: To find a student email to set up notifications, select
Classlist in the navigation bar and locate the student username. Their student email will be the username @depaul.edu.
Note: An icon of an eye with a slash through it alongside the folder name indicates that this folder is not visible to students.
