In a previous post, I shared information about Let's Crate which allows you to share files on the web. Another service that I have since discovered is called DROPitTOme. In connection with a dropbox account you allow password protected file sharing on the web.
Use this tool to allow students to submit work to you without having to log into Edline. This can also be placed on a blog or website to allow students to send you work that way as well.
