There are 4 apps that need to be downloaded on your iPad: Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides.
These apps all work together. Documents you create in Docs, Sheets, or Slides automatically save and can be put into folders
that are shared with teachers. This will be a great way for students to "hand" assignments in and for teachers to share items with
their students.
  • Google Drive: This is the organizational app. You can see all of your folders and files from your Buhler Docs account.
  • Google Docs: This is a word processing app.
  • Google Sheets: This is a spreadsheet app.
  • Google Slides: This is a presentation app.

Using Google Apps on the iPad

Getting Pictures and Videos Uploaded

Our Buhler Docs accounts can be used to collect assignments from many types of apps. Below is a video, explaining how to upload a video or picture. This will work for any product that is in the camera roll on the iPad. So, any creation apps that will save to the camera roll can be uploaded to Buhler Docs, using these steps.

ANY APP that saves its product to the camera roll can be uploaded to Buhler Docs this way.
