Creating Google Docs: for DearMYRTLE Study Group Homework

Each week, we have questions about how and where to post links to homework for our study group sessions. We post homework prior to the study group session, so we can read how panel participants interpret methodologies presented in syllabus material.

In this short subject video I demo the following:

Elements of the heading on the first page of the homework:
  • Your name
  • Link to the syllabus material for the study group session
What is Google Drive?
  • Your "hard drive in the cloud"
  • Apps including Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides

Uploading a MS Word Document

Finding the link to share this homework 
  • Get the sharable link
  • Ctrl+C or right click and select Copy
Going to the appropriate DearMYRTLE hangout and pasting the Google Doc link.
  • Paste the link in the unified chat.
  • Press enter.
  • Click on the link to test it out.

Hangouts: Pay what you want. So it's simple. If you value the work Ol' Myrt, +Cousin Russ and our beloved panelists do week in and week out on your behalf, please:
