If you would like to create a folder in Google Drive to share with your students in Google Classroom, it is not as simple as it may appear to be.
The first step is to create your folder in your own WUV Google Drive account. Once your folder has all of the materials you would like to share in it, click the arrow next to the folder name and then click “Get shareable link.”
At the bottom, you will have options for how you want this link to be viewed. Keep the link set to “Restricted” so that only those with the shareable link may view the folder. Click the blue “Copy link” button next to the URL and then click “Done.”
Now, go to your course page in Google Classroom. Click the “Classwork” tab and then press the green “Create” button. Select “Material” and this item will pop up.
Add a title and description for the material you are adding (for example, the name of the Google Drive folder). At the bottom, click the “Add” button and then click “Link.”
Paste the Google Drive link that you copied earlier and then press “Add link” and it will be attached to the material item.
Once the title, description, and link are all added you can click the green “Post” button at the top right and it will be posted to your Google Classroom course page. Your students can select the link and it will redirect them to the Google Drive link in a new tab.
