When students submit files to a Submission folder, it is possible to download all of the submitted files students at once, add feedback to the files, then re-zip the files and upload them back into to the Submission folder. D2L provides the files with a unique name so that they can be redistributed to the correct students when they are reloaded to the folder.
Note: Select individual files (instead of all the files) by simply checking the box next to the file name.
Note: Be sure not to change the names of the files. D2L uses the code in the file name to return it to the student who submitted it.
After having unzipped the bulk download of submission files, and after grading is complete, the edited files must be re-zipped and upload back into the course.
Note: If for any reason a file is unable to be automatically re-associated with a student, D2L will display a prompt to select the student. By selecting the gray arrow adjacent to the filename, a list of students will be displayed. Select the name of the appropriate student to make the association.
Feedback will not be published to students immediately, students must be individually evaluated in order to enter a score. It is also possible to leave general feedback directly in the Submission folder. See
Grading Submissions for more information.
