Your teacher may ask you to share your project. This gives your teacher the ability to look at your work and send you helpful feedback. On your assignment sheet, your teacher will tell you the inbox’s name to use when sharing your project. 


See Troubleshooting at the end of this article for answers to commonly asked questions.


To share your project follow these steps: 


1. On your project's Dashboard, in the Sharing area, click "Share with a project inbox."

2. In the field Project inbox enter the inbox’s name. The name will auto-complete as you begin to type, and once you see the right one, select it from the list.


If your teacher's inbox does not appear on the list, check your profile under "My account" to make sure your school is correctly listed. (Applies only if your entire school district is using NoodleTools.) 


3. The field Your name may be automatically filled in, but if not, enter it here, so your teacher will know who you are (the teacher may not recognize your personal ID). If you are under 13 years old, just enter your first name and last initial.


4. If you are using the optional Google Docs integration in NoodleTools, and you have a paper linked to this project that you are sharing with the teacher, check the box "Share linked Google Doc."



5. Click Done. The project is now shared with your teacher's inbox "Anderson SS101 - Final Projects."


On your My Projects screen, the project you shared will have a checkmark in the Shared column. if you do not see the checkmark, reload the Projects screen.




See video below for a brief demonstration:



When a teacher views your shared project and leaves new comments about your work, you will find all of them in the Recent comments area at the bottom of your Dashboard screen. See How to write and respond to project comments (the basics) to learn how to post new comments and respond to them.


Troubleshooting


You cannot find your teacher's inbox. 

Check your profile under "My account" to make sure your school is correctly listed. (Applies only if your entire school district is using NoodleTools.) 


The teacher cannot see your Google Doc paper that is linked to your project.

On your Dashboard screen, in the Sharing area, click "Reshare" to re-link the paper with your teacher's inbox.



Your project is shared with the wrong inbox.

You can still try again and add the correct inbox to your dashboard. Click the button "Share with a project inbox." Ask your teacher or librarian to remove your project from the wrong inbox (only they can remove it).
