Sharing Google Drive files is fairly straight forward; however, there is a caveat for BV users. You can’t share between students and teachers with authentication (require that the user sign in) because students and teachers are in different domains (NET/ORG). Staff can share with staff, and students can share with students (requiring authentication). But students and teachers cannot share with each other and require that the user sign in. The only way to share files and folders is to share as “Anyone with the Link”. Please note that “anyone with a link” can access these files. See this video to learn how!
In addition, you can share folders by right clicking the folder, and select Share. Just like the video describes above, you will select “Anyone with the Link”.
NOTE: Teachers, if you are sharing content with your students, be sure that you make it “Can view” unless you want them to have additional rights.
Google Forms carry this same issue. However, you can select that they collect an email address. This requires that they login with any Google Account, and they can input any email address that they want. Bummer!
Additionally, these issue are replicated in O365 with some exceptions. More to come on this.
