Drive

Sharing Options

Teachers can share Google files with others outside of our district (not just the @teachers.wlcsd.org and @students.wlcsd.org domains).

Student accounts are protected, allowing sharing of files only with other Walled Lake Google Apps for Education users.

Google Team Drive

Google Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device. Team Drives are now available for WLCSD educators and students! To prevent issues, it is important to have a basic understanding of what Team Drive is and how it works before trying it out.

The video below explains what Google Team Drive is and how it differs from a shared folder in My Drive. Benefits and drawbacks are discussed. This handout outlines the four levels of access and provides other important information about using Google Team Drive.
