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 Click the Word icon to access Word Online. Click New blank document to start your file.and logging in using your Parkland credentials.
After completing your document, click File > then Save As.
Save the file with a name in accordance to your instructor’s preference and click Save to another folder.
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.
Select the OneDrive Files option for the file location.
Then select the folder to which you saved the file.
Then check the box next to the file that you wish to upload to the dropbox.
You’ll see that file attached to your submit assignment page. Then click Submit.
You should then receive a confirmation that your submission was successfully, including a confirmation email was sent to your email account.
