I was preparing a tutorial tonight for our school’s department chairs. We are trying to come up with ways to easily share to additional resources or modified assignments to those students that are struggling through Google Calendars and Docs. The idea is simple enough. The teacher that is modifying the assignment or providing additional resources assigns the student a number or letter. The student knows to go to the class calendar and if he/she sees “Student C” click on this document, he or she clicks on the link to get the assignment/resource.
The catch for us is that the default settings on Docs is if someone has a school Google login, they can see the document. I created the tutorial below to show our teachers how to turn off the “Public” feature, turn it into “Private,” and share it with the student.
