Google Docs: Which Workflow Works for You?
On Twitter this week I was asked how I manage Google docs with so many students. I realized there are several different answers to this question. I wanted to share a few different workflow options for managing Google documents when you go paperless with your students. #1 Students Create & Share Docs The first option is having your students create a document for each assignment and share that document with you. 1. 2. 3. Caution: If students share their Google documents with you before naming it properly, they will appear on your inbox as an “Untitled document.” 4. 5. Benefits: This mirrors the way most Google documents are shared in life beyond the classroom. Challenges: You need to create labels in your Gmail to organize the email notifications that are sent to you each time a student shares a document. #2 gClassFolders gClassFolders is a script that can be installed on a Google spreadsheet to create shared folders for your students. #3 Students Submit Their Documents Via a Google Form 1.
