Document Delivery

This feature is designed to allow administrative staff to provide documents to learners. Unlike the 'handback response' feature for a dropbox assignment, with document delivery the learner does not have to submit a file in order to receive something back.

At present you must individually upload documents for learners.

This feature is controlled by a database setting (gradebook_assessment_document_delivery_enabled) and is disabled by default. To enable it for your organization, speak to a developer.

How to create a document delivery folder

Sample folder added to Document Delivery in a course gradebook.
  • Navigate to Admin > Manage Courses.

  • Search for the course you want to work with and from the cog icon on the right, select 'Gradebook'.

  • On the lower half of the screen, look for Document Delivery and click 'Add New Folder'.

  • Provide a folder name and set the access start and end date as needed.

  • Click 'Save'.

  • The newly created folder will display on the screen.

  • To edit a folder, click on the pencil icon to the right of the folder name.

Once a folder has been created you can upload documents for learners.
