Create Archive

Creating a Digital Archive of academic/professional work with Google Docs.

Use the File and Collections structure of Google Docs to collect artifacts for an electronic portfolio. Saved Google docs can be organized into Collections. However, these collections act more like "tags" where you may assign a single document to multiple collections. These documents, or collections of documents, can be shared for collaboration and feedback. See Collections: Sharing collections. Individual documents can be linked or embedded in a blog entry or Google Sites page.
