Can I share files with Google Classroom?

You use Google Classroom and want to create assignments with Clicker / DocsPlus files attached.


Google Classroom works best with common file types. Broadly, these are:

  • Office files (Google and Microsoft)
  • PDFs
  • popular media (images / audio / video)

The full list of supported file types is here:

Other file types can be used. However, the experience isn't as streamlined.

Open A File Attachment

To open a Clicker / DocsPlus file attached to an assignment:

  1. Click the file attachment.
  2. Click Download (or the top-right    icon).
  3. Save the file to your device.
  4. In Clicker / DocsPlus, browse to the file and open it.

Submit a file

To submit a Clicker / DocsPlus file:

  1. In the Your work section of the assignment, click + Add or create and choose File.
  2. Click Browse on the Upload tab.
  3. Browse to your file and double-click it.
  4. Click Turn in to finish the assignment.

iPad usage

Unfortunately, Google Classroom for iPad isn't designed for using unsupported files.

Therefore, we recommend using Google Drive to share Clicker / DocsPlus files with iPad users:

It's often best to create a folder and share it with other users. Files can then be freely saved into it and become available to other users automatically.
