FAQ and Other Tips and Tricks

This page is home to our FAQ, where you can find information on all sorts of things, from useful info about using Moodle and Google Docs to how to give someone access to course materials.  If you have any questions you would like to see us add answers to, please email us.

Since we have many questions answered here, we recommend that you either search by entering a keyword or by choosing a category in the blue box below instead of browsing the entire set.  For ease of use, we have links to broad categories below, but if you are looking for something that does not fit these categories, more are available in the drop-down menu in the blue box.  You may choose to add a focus (second category) to narrow your search.

How do I change whether someone can edit or view a shared file in Google Docs?

If you are sharing a document and want to change what someone is allowed to do with the document (whether he/she can view only, edit, or no longer have any access), click the Share button above the menu bar and then choose "See who has access..."  In the left column is a list of people who have access, and immediately to the right of each person is the type of access they have.  To change their access type, click on the current type of access and then choose the desired type from the drop-down menu that appears.  When you are done, click Save and Close.
