INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO USE GOOGLE DRIVE 1. All of your lab reports will be submitted to me electronically using Google Drive – there will be no paper copies of your labs turned in to me. 2. Go to https://drive.google.com/start#home 3. Sign into your Google account. If you do not have one already, select the button in the upper right hand corner and create an account. You can use an existing email address that is not a Google email address to create a Google account. 4. You can choose to upload a file, such as one of my lab files from my website, to use as a template, by selecting the upload button. You can also create a blank document to work from, by selecting the button next to the upload button. You can also do your entire lab in Microsoft Word, and then upload the entire document into Google Drive when you are ready to send your labs. 5. Once your file is uploaded or created, it immediately appears in your list of documents. You can edit and change this document from anywhere on the Internet by logging into your Google Drive account. If you click on the document, it opens in a word processor screen for changing. A share icon appears in the upper right hand corner - selecting this allows you to share this document with others. I should be the only one you share this document with. You should only choose to share this document when you are completely finished typing your labs. 6. To share your document with me, select the button, and make sure under the “Who has access” window that the first option is changed to “Private”, and that your account is listed next as owner. Then, add only my email address to the box titled “Add People”. My account is: firstname.lastname@example.org Then, select the button and make sure the “can edit” or “can comment” selection is picked so I can grade your labs. 7. All of your labs for a unit need to be included in the same document – do not share more than one document with me for a unit! If you have three labs to turn in, make sure they are all in the same document and “Share and Save” the one document to me. 8. Your document needs to be renamed according to the following format: Name, Block, Unit. For example, if I am turning in labs for the first unit, and I was in 3rd block, I would title my document: John Jauss Block 3 Unit I Labs. This can be done by clicking on your document, and then clicking on the title in the upper left hand corner. 9. Some pictures do not import directly into Google Drive. In fact, many of Mr. Jauss’ labs that you upload as a template have pictures that will not import into Google Drive. You might also want to hand write your calculations, but have no way of inserting them into your Google document. Here are several ways to import pictures or calculations into Google Drive: a. Open the Microsoft word document that you wish to obtain a picture from. Click on the image you wish to import. Then, right-click on the image and select “Copy”. The image cannot be directly pasted into your Google document. Open “Paint”. Paint can be found by going to “Start”, and then “Programs”, and then “Accessories”. Go to “Edit”, select “Paste”, and then “Save As”. Save your graph as a PNG, BMP, or JPG file on your desktop. Then, in your Google document, choose “Insert”, then “Image”, and find the image on your desktop to insert. If you are using a Mac, you can hit Command-Shift-4 to take a selection of the screen as a picture, which saves automatically on the desktop. Then, import this image into your Google document. b. To import a graph from Logger Pro, click on either the graph or data table, go to “Edit”, and select “Copy”. Open “Paint”. Paint can be found by going to “Start”, and then “Programs”, and then “Accessories”. Go to “Edit”, select “Paste”, and then “Save As”. Save your graph as a PNG, BMP, or JPG file on your desktop. Then, in your Google document, choose “Insert”, then “Image”, and find the image on your desktop to insert. If you are using a Mac, you can hit Command-Shift-4 to take a selection of the screen as a picture, which saves automatically on the desktop. c. You can also simply print the graph, and then scan it using a scanner into your computer. Then, you can import the graph as an image into your Google document. If you do not have a scanner at home, you can use Mr. Jauss’ scanner in his room. d. You can take your hand written calculations and scan it using a scanner into your computer. Then, you can import your calculations as an image into your Google document. If you do not have a scanner at home, you can use Mr. Jauss’ scanner in his room. 10. ALL PARTS OF YOUR LAB REPORT MUST BE SUBMITTED VIA GOOGLE DRIVE. NO PAPER COPIES OF ANY PORTION OF YOUR LAB REPORTS WILL BE ACCEPTED. YOUR LAB REPORTS MUST BE SUBMITTED VIA GOOGLE DRIVE ON THE DAY THAT THE LAB REPORTS ARE DUE. IF THEY ARE SUBMITTED LATE, YOU WILL RECEIVE A 0% FOR YOUR LAB GRADE.
