About sharing files in Schoolwork
You can share a file with your entire class or with one or more students in your class. If you share a file, photo, video or scanned document activity, you can specify how to share the activity:
“Each student can edit their own file”. Schoolwork sends each student their own copy of the file. You work with each student in their own file.
“Students collaborate together on the same file” (iWork file only). Schoolwork sends all students one copy of the file. You and the whole class work together in one file.
“Only you can make changes.” Schoolwork sends all students one copy of the file. Students can view the file, but only you and other teachers can make changes.
When you share a collaborative file in a Handout, you and your students can work in the same file at the same time. Depending on the type of file you share, you can view and edit it while your students are working. You can also add comments to provide real-time feedback and guide them along the way. Schoolwork supports collaboration for iWork Pages, Numbers and Keynote files.
When you share a non-collaborative file, you and your students can work in the same file but not at the same time. For example, you can mark up a PDF file and your students can see your comments later.
When editing a shared file, confirm that all your changes are saved. Schoolwork might overwrite changes if another teacher or student edits a file you shared with all students (“Students collaborate together on the same file”) at the same time you edit the file.
Note: When students submit work in Schoolwork, Schoolwork automatically sends all class teachers a shared copy of the file.
