In previous posts I have written about Teacher Dashboard, Google Apps, and how to share documents with students. Here is one more way that lets you share a link to a document in Schoology (or anywhere else) bypassing the Smart Copy button in Teacher Dashboard.
If you need to share a document with students and you want each student to have his or her own copy, here is what you do:
- Create the document in Google Drive. Make sure it has a distinctive name that lets your students know what it is when they see it in Google Drive again.
- Click the SHARE button and select to share the link to the document by clicking on GET SHAREABLE LINK.
- Copy the link and paste it into Schoology (or your blog, or an email, or Twitter…)
- Before you send or publish, edit the link. Change the last part of the link where it says /edit?usp=sharing so that it says /copy
Share the link!
