Hello Fellow Listserv-ers,
I am seeking information on how faculty members are utilizing the dropbox feature of your current Learning Management System.
Our current LMS does not allow instructors to save marked up documents directly back to the LMS. Instructors like receiving and marking up papers online. However, the problem comes in returning papers to students. The process is not fluid; and has a host of issues.
· Requires the instructor to save graded documents to their computer.
· Graded papers need to be uploaded back into the LMS shared document library.
· Graded work cannot be securely stored in the LMS shared document library (students will have access to other student papers.)
· Emailing graded documents to each individual student is unacceptable to faculty.
The few faulty that have tried using the LMS dropbox found the feature incomplete; and are sticking with Turnitin. Other faculty who use limited features of our LMS, have found other apps (Skydrive or Dropbox) to meet their needs.
I am interested in learning more about how your LMS dropbox works; limitations of your dropbox; and if this tedious process is unique to our LMS.
I appreciate your assistance.
