Organize master folder into TD shared docs folders

In this guide, you will create a folder in Google Drive (if you don't already have one) that will be your master folder for the documents you want to share with students. You will then organize that folder into your multiple Teacher Dashboard shared docs folders. This means that you will have one place to go to and add, modify, or delete documents and the changes will happen for every section of your class.

Click on My Drive and look at your master folder. You should see that it is also shared inside the Teacher Dashboard Shared Docs folders. All of your students can now view the Science 7 folder. Any changes you make inside that folder will also get changed for students.


Student view

You have now shared content with your students as view-only. This is what it looks like from a student view. They have a folder that says their course name and Shared Docs. Inside that folder, they can see what you put in for them to see.
