I’m developing some lessons with MS-Word then converting them to PDF forms with Adobe Acrobat Pro. I had hoped to use Google Drive to share these files with students who have almost zero knowledge of computers but apparently Google Drive doesn’t allow Adobe Acrobat to open files without first downloading them. The best solution I’ve come up with so far is to use LINE chat and attach files to a chat session. LINE also supports video but not screen sharing.
Ideally I’d like to have a shared folder on my desktop that’s synced with a folder on my student’s desktop. Dropbox, Google Drive, SharePoint all seem too complicated. My students don’t even know what a “file” is. I don’t want them to have to open a new account somewhere. They forget their passwords all the time. What technologies do you recommend for sharing and editing PDF files with students in primary school?
