Computer Projects

If you are working on a computer (Keynote/Pages), here are some steps you'll need to take in order to start, save, share, and turn in your work. If possible, work on the same computer each day.

Starting Your Project
  • Name your Project with teacher initial, class period, topic, and members' first names (B-P2 Cells Roger-Stephanie-Tim)
  • Do NOT use commas or slashes in your file name
  • Be sure to show the file extension (.key or .pages)
  • Save to your desktop at first, then drag it to your MyDublinCloud or to your ClassFiles cloud at the end of the period.
  • When you continue working on your project, you can work from the server. The only exceptions are multi-media files like GarageBand or iMovie.
  • Save early, save often! ⌘S

Sharing Working Components with Your Group
  • Create a folder in your ClassFiles cloud
  • You can drag any working files into that folder.
  • All the group members can see and copy any items, but can only edit/delete/rename/move the files they've put in themselves.

Turning in Your Project
  • Drag your final project from your cloud to your desktop.
  • Open your ClassFiles cloud, and find the folder for the class for which you're doing the project.
  • Drag your final project from your desktop to that class Dropbox.

Web Projects

  • Your working project is on the web. You don't have to do anything special in order for your teacher and classmates to see your work!
  • If you want an easy way to share a link with your teacher, try using the Bookmarks area in the Dublin Dashboard.
  • You can also grab the icon next to the URL in the address bar, and drag it to your desktop. That creates a link document. The link document can be moved into your ClassFiles could.

iPad Projects

If you are working on an iPad, you will need to work on the same iPad for the duration of the project. Once your project is completed, export it to the Camera Roll on the iPad, and use the Dublin Dashboard to turn the project in. You should upload a copy to your on MyDublinCloud, then upload another copy to the Dropbox in your ClassFiles cloud. Here is a lesson to help you.
