I wish I had something wonderful to report/share but unfortunately this post is a bit of a bore and a whine. For some reason, I'm unable to share Google documents with students who set up their blogger accounts with hotmail, LAGCC , yahoo and/or aol e-mails??? The strange thing is, that at first I was able to do so- I created a grade book ( borrowed this from Prof. Smith) or separate document in Google docs for each student, which contains all the assignments completed or missing. But when I tried something similar with my students' assignments drafts - they complete an assignment in Google Docs and set share settings to themselves + me or Anyone with a link, and then I make a copy of it, rename it, add my comments and share this new version with them- Google Docs would not allow me to share them. The document would not have the little label Shared next to it and students would e-mail my gmail account, which I rarely check as I gave them my LAGCC e-mail for contact purposes- requesting permission to view the documents.
Has Google changed settings for Blogger? Does it discriminates against some e-mail addresses but not others? I know this sounds silly but it is very frustrating and completely random (i.e. I can share documents with one student who used LAGCC e-mail to set up blogger but I cannot do so with another student who also used LAGCC e-mail to set up blogger???).
