Google Docs Offline On Your Chromebook

Many of our Leyden students have a need for accessing their Google documents on their Chromebooks when they don't have Internet access.  I put together the following tutorial to explain the basics of enabling and using offline docs on a Chromebook.

Before the end user/student can set this up, make sure that offline docs are enabled in the Google Apps for Education control panel:  Settings > Drive and Docs > General > Offline.  There is an "Allow users to enable offline docs" checkbox.

Unfortunately, SlideRocket was bought out by another company and no longer provides an educational product.  Here is the PDF version of the slide deck.  Sorry, no narration.
