On July 25, 2019, we introduced a new Buzz Activity Player. In order to ease transition, we are allowing users to continue using the previous tool until June of 2020.

This article includes content around how to use both tools in two sections: Old Activity Player and New Activity Player.

Old Activity Player

Dropbox submissions allow you to attach files and enter text into an editor.

To complete a dropbox submission:

  1. Add Comments or an audio/video file using the text editor.
  2. Click the plus sign to attach a file. You can have up to three choices for selecting a file:
    • Attach File from your computer.
      • This option allows you to browse your computer to select a file.
    • Create Google Document (if your domain is set up with G Suite)
      • This option allows you to create Google Drive document and submit it. Once it's submitted, Buzz also creates a PDF snapshop of the activity for you and your teacher.
    • Choose Google Document
      • This option allows you to browse your Google Drive to select a file. Once it's submitted, Buzz also creates a PDF snapshop of the activity for you and your teacher.
  3. Click Submit my work.

 

Create Google Document (dropbox submission)

When you choose Create Google Document as a dropbox submission:

  1. Give the activity a title.
  2. Select the kind of document you want to create (Google Docs, Google Sheets, or Google Slides).
  3. Click Create.
  4. This will take you to the newly created document in your Google Drive in a new window where you can complete the assignment.
  1. Once you're finished, return to your Buzz window, where you will see your new document attached, and click Submit my work.
