Offline Access with Synchronization
When a wireless connection exists, assignments can be saved for offline use. Step away from your work desk - enjoy a trip to the cottage, take your kids to the hockey game, or simply change up your working environment, all without falling behind on work.
If the connection gets interrupted, no worries. Continue working offline with downloaded assignments. When wireless coverage is restored, simply synchronize with your Dropbox to upload grades and feedback, and download any new student submissions.
Multiple View Options
Switching between multiple views allows you to quickly get around submissions and grade in the workflow that you prefer. Multiple view options include:
- View assignments by course, due date, or ungraded vs. graded
- Sort Dropboxes by ungraded, name, due date, or grade
Support for Wide Range of Submission Types
Extensive file support means that students don't have to be restricted to essays and reports. Enhance the learning experience by introducing creative and engaging projects, without the worry of compatibility issues. Supported documents include:
- Microsoft® Office® (Word®, Excel®, PowerPoint®)
- Apple iWork (Pages, Numbers, Keynote)
- Text based format (.txt)
- Rich Text (.rtf)
- Web Pages (.htm and .html)

Engage students by leaving written comments on their submissions, or providing personalized audio or video feedback. You can also annotate submissions with inline comments - highlight, underline and strikethrough; circle, draw and write anywhere; or insert notes at specific locations.
