Like any website, the VHS site will periodically be updated and serviced. There are two ways you can login to your VHS course. Use the links below if you are having trouble reaching the login page. Contact Mr. Dyl ASAP if you cannot login using either of these links.
Use Google Drive to create Docs, Slides, or Sheets for your VHS class.
Any files created in your drive will be saved to the cloud. This means you can access your work from any device with an internet connection including phones or tablets. Just download the Google Drive app or follow the link below.
Complete your discussion posts in Google Docs so you can pick up where you left off if the bell rings. Just Copy and Paste your work into the VHS discussions area when you are done.
VHS can be overwhelming at first but you will get the hang of it. Most courses have a fairly easy Week 1 to give you practice navigating your class without too much content. Links to refreshers from the Student Orientation will be available in most of the Week 1 lessons. They may start disappearing later in the semester so return here for those refreshers.
You will occasionally have to take a screenshot of what you have done on your computer and turn this image in a discussion, blog, or wiki. You many know how to do this using your phone, but it is a little different using a PC or Chromebook. A computer screenshot does not save directly to your photos or pictures folder. Follow these steps to save your screenshot as a picture.
Press the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard to Copy your screen. (Sometimes abbreviated PrtScr and located near the top right of your keyboard)
You will now have to Paste your picture to the location of your assignment.
If you can't Paste directly into your VHS discussion, blog, or wiki you can use Google Drawings to download the image as a JPEG or PNG.
Use the internet to open your Google Drive.
Click New, then More, then Google Drawings.
Press Ctrl + V or Right Click and select Paste.
Name the drawing something you will remember.
Click Download As and choose either .jpg or .png.
Return to your VHS class and use the Insert Image button to add this .jpg/.png file.
You will most likely find this file in the Downloads folder if you are using a PC.
