Technology Tips and Tricks
MAKING AN AUTOMATIC STUDENT COPY IN GOOGLE DOCS
- Open a Google doc.
- Make the sharing permissions "Anyone in LISD with the link can view".
- Copy the URL.
- When you paste the URL to the site you want to share with students (EX: https://docs.google.com/a/go.lisd.net/document/d/1PjNGaIyhDgFOhbwqbK8A0V496FrddaXorMVUmG7wEgE/edit?) backspace until you eliminate the word edit even if numbers of letter follow it.
- Replace it with the word copy. (EX: https://docs.google.com/a/go.lisd.net/document/d/1PjNGaIyhDgFOhbwqbK8A0V496FrddaXorMVUmG7wEgE/copy).
- Students will then be asked, "Do you want to make a copy?"
- When they click "Make a copy", Google will make a copy in the student's Google Drive.
