Click on any assignment or forum post that may require a file upload. Then click Add.
When the file picker appears you will see several reposititories to choose from. The default is Upload a File, which will allow you to upload a file from your computer. However, there are also several other places to upload files from and in this example we will use Google Docs.
Click on the repository (Google Docs) and then click Login.
When the box below pops up, you may have to enter your account information and then click the Accept Button.
A list of all the files available in your Google Docs account will appear in the File Picker. To adjust how the files are listed you can click on the Display Buttons in the upper corner.
Click on the file you would like to add. The following box will appear with some settings that you can adjust, such as the Save as field. When you are satisfied, click Select this file.
Then verify your file upload and click the button to finish the file submission/post/upload process.
