  1. Make the Doc “public,” and allow editing rights if you choose
  2. Post the link from a webpage the students access, such as a class webpage
  3. Students click on the link to the public document and open it
  4. Students with Google accounts can do one of two things:
  1. Use the SHARE drop down menu and “share” the document with themselves; also send an email to themselves with a link
  2. Or, MAKE A COPY of the document within DOCS and rename it
