I use Google Docs too!

I have a table at the top with the class/challenge names in alphabetical order (each name is a link to the full description below), a short description of the requirements, what project I made (or what I plan to make), whether I'm done making the project (because I usually wait and post more than one project at a time), whether it's a SPEW project, how many points the project is worth, total points (I usually fill this column out at the end of the semester), and the due date:

I make the row background light purple after I've posted a project and light pink when I've missed the deadline for a project.

Below the table I copy/pasted class descriptions, challenge information, OWL/NEWT information, etc. Smiley
