index.php/fa/42208/0/For a college assignment, we had to import a java project into ecplipse from our College lecturers public GIThub repository, then add a final class into the project.
Obviously this project is assaigned to her repository.
Now im trying to upload the project from eclipse to my private GIThub repository, but im running into issues. When i right click the project then go to teams > committ. It's showing all the files in her repository, but when i select mt reposiutory to upload the project to, none of the files are showing up.

I already have my repository imported to eclipse, its just committing the project to that repository then is where im having the trouble.

I'll attach screenchots to this question for further explanation.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Your lecturer should have given you an introduction to Github and how to work with it.

From your description it's next to impossible to know what's going on, and your photo of the git staging view is spectacularly unhelpful.

I can only guess what you did:
* You cloned your lecturer's Github repo.
* You imported the project and made your changes. The project would still be associated with your lecturer's repo!
* You cloned your private repo.
* And now you wonder how to get your change into your private repo.

Do this differently:
* Create a fork of you lecturer's repo on Github.
* Clone your fork.
* Import the project from your fork.
* Make your changes. (If you already have made changes before: copy them aside, then here copy them into the project.)
* Push to your fork.
* Once you're happy with it, do whatever your instructor said you should do to submit your assignment solution (probably create a pull request in the Github web UI).

At no point should it be necessary to clone your instructor's Github repo.
