Students can upload a file to submit, just as before, in learning objects where Submit is turned on. To do this, click Add.
A pop-out box will appear, giving you two options for submitting a file – creating a new one or uploading an existing one.
To create a file, click Create.
A pop-out box will ask you to provide a title, and you can also provide an optional summary and tags.
When you click Create Document, you will see the title of the new document added as a “Pinned Document” and the BQ Docs editor opens at the bottom of the window.
In the BQ Docs editor, you have many standard formatting options for editing your document. To annotate your document, click on the bookmark icon at the upper left.
You can adjust the size of the document window by clicking and dragging the top black bar up and down. Also, note the Save, Overlay, and minimize buttons at the top right.
Click the Overlay button at the top right to open the overlay options panel. You can mark the document with a “marker” with the choice of 16 different colors. Click Eraser to erase your marks. Use the Note button to add notes in the color of your choice. Each note has a date stamp and can be resized by dragging the triangle at the lower right of the note. The example below has a pink “marker” square and a green note.
When you are finished editing your document, click Save at the upper right of the editor. You can click the minimize button to remove the document from your screen.
To upload a file, click Upload in the Add File pop-out box.
You will then be prompted to select a file from your computer to upload. As before, you can upload any type of file, including ZIP files. Once you upload the file, it will appear in your list of “Pinned Documents” and will open in the BQ Docs editor if it’s a file that can be converted.
You can show or hide your list of documents by clicking the blue file icon next to the Add button. This icon also tells you the number of documents you have.
Once a file has been created or uploaded, you can submit if by clicking Submit for Grading. You will then see a green checkmark if it was submitted before the due date and a red checkmark if it was submitted after the due date.
When you hover over the document in the list, you will see, from left to right, icons to edit, delete, and share that document.
Click the pencil icon to open your document in the BQ Docs editor, and click the trash can icon to delete the document as an attachment to that assignment.
Clicking the share icon allows you to share one or more documents before you submit them. When you click the share icon, you will see a list of instructors with whom you can share the document. Select the instructor, and then click SHARE.
