Upload Drafts Posts

I ask you to upload your drafts and exercises because it's an easy place for me to find those things if I need them (usually later). But I don't use these versions for grading. For grading, I use the paper copy you give me in class. So, in short, you need to do both in order to get credit.

How to Upload a Draft

1. Name the file: yourlastname.assignmentname.date, (e.g., gabriel.firstshortstory.february15); if you're using a Word file, it must have a .doc extension at the end
2. From the "Upload Drafts" page, click on the assignment name (e.g., First Short Story)
2. Click on "Files" button on the menu at the bottom right of this page
3. Select the File from your hard drive to upload
4. Click "Upload File"
