Force Copy a Google app File
Instead of relying on your students or your audience to make a copy of your Doc, there is a way you can, essentially, do that for them. At the end of the URL of any Google file that you're working on is the word "edit." All it takes to do this is to replace the word "edit" with "copy," and then share out that link. Just like that, anyone who has that link will be forced to make a copy of the file, making it really easy for sharing. If you'd like to take this even further, you can copy and paste the new link (with "copy" at the end) into a URL shortener, customize the address, and then students or the audience will have a simple link to type that will still force them to make a copy!
