[LON-CAPA-users] Allowing marker to "return" to student a file when there was no file submitted by the student.

Hello All,

Is there a way to use a DropBox in LON-CAPA which would allow markers to "return" to students a file which the student never originally submitted to LON-CAPA?

For example, one wants to be able to "return" to students, via LON-CAPA, a revised and marked MSWord document, which was originally submitted to (shall we say) turnitin.com?

Presently, it seems to me, that one can only access the ability to return a file to the students, if there is FIRST a student-submitted file (and it should be the same type of file).

Perhaps there is a way for the instructor to submit a dummy Word document, on behalf of all students in their course, so as to initialize this feature?

Anyone is currently doing something like this?

Is there another, better way?
