How To: Submit Labs © R. Craig Collins, 2005

Typically, you will need to zip the file(s) to be submitted, rename the zip to yourname-labx or yourname-labx.zip (see note below on extensions*), and submit the file

*Your computer may hide extensions, and differentiate file types only with icons; if so, just ignore this part of the instruction

 for Labs that require files to be electronically submitted
 • zip the required file(s) and/or folder(s)
 • rename the zipped file to reflect your name and the lab being turned in
       •Example: yourname-lab1 or yourname-lab1.zip (if your extensions are visible)
