There are a few different ways to do this. You can create a folder and give students permission to upload files to it, or you can create a forum in which students attach their paper to a post (this also gives other students a venue to post comments and upload files in response.)
To create a forum
With editing turned on, add a resource or activity, and choose "forum". That's it!
To create a folder to which students can upload:
With editing turned on, go to a block and click "add a resource". Create a folder. Once you have saved it, click on the folder to see it. Under settings, click "permissions". In the line that says "Manage files in folder menu", click "+" then select the "student" role, then click "add". If you have auditors, unregistered students or other roles that need these permissions, complete the steps for all rolls.
Students will now be able to add (and remove!!!- be aware) files to this folders, just as you, the instructor, can.
