Hyperdocs: Managing Multiple Classes with Different Collaborative Documents

The Background:

Today I finally got caught up on over a month’s worth of Voxes in the #ConnectedTL Voxer group. One conversation during that time was about how to manage Hyperdoc game boards that have collaborative elements when using it with multiple classes or periods.

The Problem:

The issue that was put forward was how to manage having multiple classes get the same game board with each student getting their own copy while still having linked collaborative documents that are unique for each group of students.

The Solution:

The solution that I came up with is to have an intermediary document that serves as a launch pad for those different collaborative documents. The solution I found also restricts access to those documents to the group of students that I want to have it.

Visually:    Each individual student’s game board -> Launch document -> All different collaborative documents with access restrictions enabled.

Because describing this is words is difficult to make clear, please watch my screencast of how to make this work.

I would love any feedback about the process and how to make it clearer!

Happy Hyperdocing!

  1. What if you did the same sharing, but put the “period 1/2/3” hyperlinks right on your game board? Less clicks for the Ss but same sharing restrictions.
