This article illustrates how you can copy files from your Google Drive to your School Loop Locker. Here is a link to an article giving a brief description of how to Integrate Google Drive with your Locker on your School Loop account.
To copy files between Google Drive and your School Loop locker, you can use one of the following two options.
- Dragging and dropping: click and hold the mouse button on a file, drag it to its destination, and release the mouse button. In the example presented below, the file "This is a new test doc for School Loop" will be dragged and dropped into the user's My Locker folder which is "Aguirre's Locker"
- Alternatively, click the checkboxes and click the Copy icon at the top of the locker to copy the file to its destination folder.
- Copying a file to Google Drive creates a new copy of that file. Any changes you make to the original will not be reflected in Drive.
- Copying a file from Google Drive creates a link to that file in your locker. Changes to native Google docs will be reflected in the linked file within School Loop.
- Students can submit Google docs to assignments. Students can use the "Submit from Locker" link in every School Loop assignment to submit work from Google Drive. When a student submits a native Google document to an assignment, School Loop submits the actual Google doc and a copy of the work as either a PDF or RTF document.
- The copy is a snapshot of the Google document at the time of submission. No changes to the document made after submission will be reflected in the snapshot unless the student resubmits the assignment.
- Teachers can view submitted work from their portal or through the gradebook. Students can also submit non-native files from Drive; those submissions are in the same format (text file, Word, Excel, etc.) as the original document.
