Google Docs: Google Docs is a free, web-based office suite that includes word processing, spreadsheets, forms, presentations and more + data storage service that allows users to create and edit documents online while collaborating in real-time with other users.  Staff: Create a Google account using your same HUSD domain name and password.

Dropbox: A web-based, cloud file storage service that allows you to store and selectively share your digital files on the internet. The first 2 gigabytes are free.

Using Dropbox for student work and grading – These services in Dropbox make it possible to collect and grade student work digitally:
                • is an overview of classroom uses for Dropbox.
                • lets students upload their work through a secure URL. Once the teacher’s account is linked to the website, files automatically appear in the teacher’s Dropbox. 
                • is similar: students e-mail work to a new e-mail address and then it appears in the teacher’s Dropbox. An added advantage is saving lots of paper!
