How can I save a digital/PDF copy my syllabus, checklist, or other course document?

We use Google Docs to publish and host important course documents like the syllabus, checklist, assignment instructions, etc. You can save a copy to your computer by saving it as a PDF. This process is different depending on if your computer uses Mac OS or Windows:

Mac OS: In your web browser, go to "File > Print". In the lower-left corner, look for the PDF menu. Select "Save as PDF" and follow the directions to save the file to a location on your computer.

  • If you have Windows 10, you can print the file to a PDF with the directions here.
  • If you have Google Chrome, go to File > Print. Next to Destination, click the Change... button, and select Save as PDF. Click the blue Save button at the top, and you will be asked where you want to save the file on your computer.
  • If you have Mozilla Firefox or another browser, you will need to install an add-on or extension to your browser that allows you to save web pages as PDFs. For help with your specific web browser, you can do a Google search for "print to pdf browser extension" and include the name of your web browser.
