Document Exchange

For a long time, teachers have been telling us they wish they could share the assignments, tests, quizzes, lessons, and other work with their fellow teachers.

We've now added this functionality to the English Teacher group, and will soon roll it out to the other groups that users have created. This will also allow you to create groups for your classes and post assignments there or allow students to post their work. 

We encourage you to try it out, and post something! Just click on "Document Exchange" at the top of this group. Post your feedback, thoughts, etc., in this topic.

Alex,

     Will there be a way to post tests and quizzes with answers that students will not be able to access?  It could get hairy with today's tech-savvy students when they locate and find both their test and the answers in one nice, neat package.

That's a good question. In most cases, students won't know what websites their teachers use. If it becomes a concern, soon we'll be enabling document sharing for private groups, so only people you or the other group admins have approved will be able to access the documents in those groups.

Great and thank you!  If anyone has something on a 1-hour on the role allegory plays in The Lord of the Flies I'd love to see it. :)

(I'm in credential school and so I don't have much *yet* in the way of contributions, sorry!)

Alex,

In the second part of the roll-out, will the students have to be members of enotes to participate in the group?  I am assuming yes? 

And I agree with 4 - great idea!

In reply to #5: Currently, you need to be a registered user to participate in any group. If you create your own group, and make it a private group, you can then just invite the people you want (such as your students) to your group.

I love document exchange.  I noticed that we get paid $1 for each document, but most of the documents are free.  Are they all free?  Are only those from publishers purchased?  I have to explore this a bit more, but so far that seems to be what I have noticed.
