Collaborate with students in Schoolwork
When you share a collaborative file, you and your students can work in the same file at the same time. You can view and edit the file while your students are working in it, and add comments to provide real-time feedback and guide them along the way.
Schoolwork supports collaboration for Pages, Numbers, and Keynote files.
Collaborate with students
To collaborate with each of your students individually in their own copy of a Pages file:
In the Schoolwork app , tap in the upper right of the window.
Enter a title for your assignment.
Tap in Assign To, tap a class if you have more than one, tap to add your entire class or one or more students in your class to your assignment (swipe down to search for students), then tap Done.
To set a different due date for your assignment, tap the date, select the date and time you want, then tap Done.
If you add a due date to an assignment, any activities or work a student submits after the due date are late. To remove a due date, tap .
To set a delivery date for your assignment, tap Deliver, select the date and time you want Schoolwork to publish the assignment, then tap Done.
Specifying a delivery date allows you to create your assignment ahead of time, then specify the exact date and time you want to send the assignment to your students.
Tap Add Activities, tap Files, then add your Pages file (for example, Integers Investigation).
To rename the file, tap the name, then enter a new name.
Tap , then tap “Each student can edit their own file.”
Each student receives their own copy of the Integers Investigation file with their name prepended to the file name (for example, Bettinger Jason - Integers Investigation).
Enter instructional text and include multimedia for your assignment.
Tap Publish, then collaborate and view each file while students are working on their activity.
Students can work in their own copy of the file, and you can view and edit the file while your students are working in it to add comments and provide real-time feedback.
If you specified a delivery date, tap Schedule. Schoolwork saves the assignment in the Scheduled tab to send on the specified date and time.
When you share a file with your entire class or one or more students in your class, you can specify how to share the file:
Each student can edit their own file: Schoolwork sends each student a copy of the file. You work with each student in their individual file.
Students collaborate together on the same file: Schoolwork sends all students the same copy of the file (iWork file only). You and the entire class work together in the shared file.
Only you can make changes: Schoolwork sends all students the same copy of the file. Students can view the file, but only you and co-teachers can edit the file.
