Submitting Assignments via Google Docs

  1. Please sign up for a Google account if you don’t have one already.
  2. At the Google homepage, click on the “more” drop-down menu at the top of the page, and choose “Google Documents.”
  3. Once in Google Docs, click on the “Create new” button in the top-left, and choose “Folder.” Create a new folder named “LAD_Spring2011_LastName_FirstName” (to change the name, simply click on the words “New Folder” in the blue bar).
  4. Now, under the name of your new folder, click on “Share,” then select “share this folder.”
  5. In the pop-up window, under “Add People,” type my email address, and set my status to “can edit.” Click the buttons that allow you to send a copy to your self and send email notification. Then click “Share,” then “Close.”

Please create all written assignments as Word, Pages, or basic text editor files. I need to be able to download your file and edit your text and add comments, so please don’t submit pdfs or convert your document to a Google Doc. Include your last name and “LAD” somewhere in your file name.

When you’re ready to upload your assignment, (1) return to Google Docs, and choose “upload” in the upper-left corner of the page. You’ll be directed to a new page, where you can (2) click “Select files to upload” and choose the name of your file. Please unselect both “convert” options. In the “destination folder” pull-down menu, choose “LAD_Spring2011…”; make sure the privacy settings are set to “Private,” so only I can see your document; and click “Start Upload.”
