(If you aren’t familiar with using symbols and shapes in Word, the NAU Online Library’s Learning Express video tutorials can help.)

This program offers a drag-and-drop interface and the ability to export your file as a .JPG or .PDF you can upload to the dropbox. Gliffy and Creately both allow you to create 5 flowcharts for free.
