There are 2 options.

Option 1: Simple Mahara dropbox for students.

1. Add an activity or resource (ensure editing is on)

2. Tick "Mahara portfolio" under "Submission types"

3. Save and return to site (unless you want to change any of the default settings)

Option 2: Mahara dropbox AND file submission to be analysed by Urkund (text-matching system).

For option 2, you need to simply tick "File submissions" as well as "Mahara portfolio". See screenshot below:
