Cobra Learning: Using a Chromebook with Dropbox


Submitting to a dropbox from a Chromebook.

When creating assignments to be submitted to a dropbox in Cobra, an actual file must be submitted.  Unfortunately, Google Docs only submits a link that instructors must have permission to review to grade.  Therefore, it is advisable that students make use of their Office365 accounts and use Word Online to create their assignment.

Using the Google Chrome web browser, access your Parkland Office365 account by going to and logging in using your Parkland credentials.  Click the Word icon to access Word Online.  Click New blank document to start your file.

After completing your document, click File > then Save As.

Save as from Chromebook Word Online

Save the file with a name in accordance to your instructor’s preference and click Save to another folder.

Save As Word file name to OneDrive on Chromebook

Select the folder in your OneDrive account to which you want to save your document.  Then click Save.

Go to your course in Cobra, and to the dropbox to where you are to submit your assignment.  Click Add a File.
