- There's an "edit" folder that all the students in that class and the teacher have edit rights to.
- There's a "view" folders that the teacher has edit rights to but the students just have view rights to.
- There's individual "dropbox" folders that each individual student and the teacher have edit rights to (the teacher sees all the dropbox folders, each student just sees their own).
While you can do this manually, it's really nice for teachers with several hundred students to automatically create and organize these folders from a spreadsheet that can be easily populated by exporting from your student information system (Infinite Campus for us). Here are the instructions I shared with my teachers in case any of you find it helpful.
