    I know I deal with the case of "Yes, I turned in my assignment but Blackboard ate it." many times a semester.    What do you all think of this idea of an instructor at my campus.

     

    "Is it possible for students to receive email confirmation after they submit an assignment?  There are always a few students who genuinely thought they submitted something but navigated away from the page without doing so.  I hammer home the lesson that they can always check what has been submitted through toggling to the “Submitted” section of “My Grades,” but I wondered if there was a feature that could send an automated email to the student, similar to an Amazon order confirmation."
