Can you make a web drop box with idisk?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
So I teach a physics class where I currently have students submit assignments by email. Problem is after they submit it they have no way to know if I received their email. I setup automatic confirmation, but that doesn't work all the time apparently.

So what I would really like is if I could setup individual drop boxes for each student and somehow have a web-based submission system or something.

Any suggestions?

    Personally I would write a java applet that allows them to upload submissions via a webpage, and have the applet email the submissions to me.

    Not really hard to do in java, probably <100 lines.

    They could select their name from a list in the applet and the applet would sort everything automatically by class or student or whatever.
