When you are ready to share a document, click the Share button as you normally would in Google Docs. In the 'Add people' box, start typing the name of the person you wish to share the document with.
Another subdomain that we have is the 'crs.austinisd.org' domain that is reserved for class groups. Students accounts are automatically added into a crs group by the class scheduling system. Teachers do not need to create these group or manage the movement of students between classes or schools.
In this picture, we see that two different addresses have been selected to share this document with. The first is a class account. These follow the format,
CampusCode/Teacher'sE#/Periodemail@example.com . Like the other addresses, the crs addresses will autopopulate as you type in this box.
You also have the ability to attach a message with this sharing process. From this same picture, we see a teacher giving editing rights to an entire class and a specific student. Students can use the Google 'File- Make a copy' menu to make their own editable copy that they can then save to a collection that the teacher has created for all students in that class. Collections can be shared in the exact same way as above to help manage student document sharing with the teacher.
