Stub of an article comparing the Drop Box tool with the Assignments tool.

The Drop Box and Assignments tool are both tools for the electronic submission of files. The assignment tool enforces dates, allows the returning or marks, and issues receipts to students (and optionally to instructors) where the drop box is more free form and optionally sends E-Mails, enforces nothing and does not have a way to associate grades with submissions.

The Assignments tool works best as a tool for accepting all submissions and returning all grades electronically and the drop box works best as a "Plan B" or compliment to paper-based options.
