Students will never need to download anything in order to view the videos they (or their classmates) have created using Submit. Each of those videos is saved in the teacher's Google Drive subfolder for the assignment and can be shared in the same way as any other Google Drive file could be.
To share files from Google Drive
- Click the file you want to share.
- Click Share or Share (Learn more about how others view, comment, or edit files.)
- If you don’t want to send an email to people, click Advanced and uncheck the Notify people box. If you notify people, each email address you enter will be included in the email.
- Click Send.
- To stop sharing a file with collaborators, learn how to change sharing permissions.
To share folders from Google Drive
Here’s what people can do with folders after you share it with them:
- Can organize, add, & edit: If they're signed into a Google account, people can open, edit, delete, or move any files within the folder. People can also add files to the folder.
- Can view only: People can see the folder and they can open all files within the folder.
More about folder sharing:
- If you share or unshare folders with a lot of files or subfolders, it might take time before all permissions change. If you change a lot of edit or view permissions at once, it might take time before you see the changes.
Choose who to share with
Like files, you can choose to share with only specific people.
Click the folder you want to share.
Under "People," type the email address or Google Group you want to share with.
To choose how a person can use the folder, click the Down arrow
Click Send. An email is sent to people you shared with.
Anyone with a link to the folder
You can give other people a link to your folder so that you don't have to add email addresses when you share your folder.
- On your computer, go to drive.google.com.
- Click the folder you want to share.
- Click Share
- At the top right, click Get shareable link.
- Next to "Anyone with the link," click the Down arrow
- Choose whether people can edit or view.
- Copy and paste the link in an email or any place you want to share it.
Share in a Google Slide
With Screencastify Submit, a teacher can give students both an assignment link to record a video and a link to the folder of videos for them to view at any time.
- Create a Google slide with two links - the first for the assignment and the second for the folder of videos
- To get a link to the Submit assignment, copy and paste that link from the Submit dashboard into the Google Slide
- To get a link to the subfolder of videos, click on the submissions link to open the Submit subfolder. Right-click on the subfolder to grant permission for all students to view videos. Copy and paste that link into the Google Slide.
