If your school provides you with a Google account, you can use Google Drive folders to store your coursework and share the work with your teachers. After creating a Google Drive folder, you will need to share the folder with your teacher. After sharing the folder, you can copy and paste a link to specific items within the folder when responding to assignments. Specific items may include Google Docs, Word documents, Google Slide presentations, Excel spreadsheets, photos, audio/video recordings, and PDF files (scroll down for instructions).
How to create a Google Drive folder
From your Google Drive account home page, click New.
From the drop-down list, click Folder.
Type in a folder name and then click Create. When deciding on a folder name, it is a good practice to use the course name. If you’re taking more than one online course, create a folder for each course to keep track of your work.
How to share a Google Drive folder
Right click the folder name and then click Share.
In the field Add people and groups, type in your teacher’s WIU7 email address. Google will look for a valid Google account associated with the email address.
Click the teacher’s name or email address below the Add people and groups field to select it.
Click Send and an email will alert your teacher to access your folder.
