This is probably huge overkill: Set up Nextcloud/ownCloud instance.
Your students can have individual accounts and drop their projects
into a folder shared with you, or you can share one folder with a link
for anonymous access.

This has the added bonus that anyone can run the Nextcloud/ownCloud
sync client if they want to replicate the files on their desktop and
use destop-based tools.
