Dropbox (MyLS Course Tool)

The dropbox is a course tool in MyLS.

The dropbox tool allows your instructor to create folders for each assignment so that you can submit your assignments inside of MyLS, within a specific period.

After you upload your submission, you will receive an email confirming that your file was submitted.

Once your assignment has been graded, you can return to the dropbox folder to view your grade and any feedback your instructor has left.
