Receive Student Media in the Media Inbox

If students have submitted media to the Dropbox, click the Media Inbox tab to view any added files.

The Media Inbox tab shows how many new media assets have been received. Any media added recently will appear with Is New! in red text.

NOTE: Students will not be able to see the media they upload. Only Instructors can see what is in the Media Inbox. Instructors can choose media assets from the Media Inbox to show in the Course Collection.
