gClassFolders- No Longer Supported, but still can be used. Try switching to Doctopus

Bjorn Behrendt, an education technology coordinator in Vermont,  has developed a quick and easy process to create folders in Google Drive for all of his students from one spreadsheet in just a few minutes.  His method, which he calls gClassFolders results in three types of folders being created:

  • Class View - Files that are view able by everyone in the class, but students cannot edit (ex: syllabus, project descriptions, rubrics).

  • Class Edit - Files that are editable by everyone in the class (ex: group projects, collective notes, brainstorming pages).

  • Student Dropbox - A folder that is shared only between you and an individual student.  This can be used as a place for students to turn in assignments.
