How do I submit a dropbox submission?


Dropbox allows you to attach a document to an assignment in Echo. Dropbox is an option the teacher has to enable in order to allow an attachment to be connected to an assignment.


From the homepage enter the course that has an assignment with a dropbox submission.


Click on the assignment that has a dropbox submission.


Click, "Show Dropbox".


Within the dropbox one can:

  • Choose a Google Document to attach
  • Choose a file from computer to attach
  • Add comments to the teacher

Choose to save and come back later or submit when finished attaching a document.



Echo is constantly being improved based on the feedback from users and we strive to keep our documentation up to date.  If this document doesn’t match what you are seeing in Echo, please let us know.

    Once a student has submitted, can they upload other items to dropbox? Say a student submits two files, and then realizes he or she needs to submit another. Right now, Echo says resubmissions are not permitted. Can that setting be changed?

    We have submitted a feature request around this.  You can "allow retry" in your gradebook as well as send items back using the batch update feature in the gradebook as well.

    Is there a way to allow only one submission, before a due date is set? Right now my students are able to modify and fix their original submission until the due date. Is there a way around this?
