NOTE: In order to use a Google Doc in Writable, the teacher will have to include this in the assignment. Teachers: see this article for instructions on how you can embed a Google Doc in your assignment.
This feature is not recommended for students using iPads.

  • If a Google Doc has been added to the assignment, students will see the doc when they log in to Writable and click to begin their assignment.

  • Students will click inside the Google Doc to type. They can access the toolbar to use Google's built-in tools such as voice-to-text, word count, and more.

  • Students can use the Google Doc in fullscreen by clicking the opposing arrows as shown.

  • To return to the assignment, they can click 'Check & Submit'.
