Google Drive – Where has my class folder gone?

At the end of each school year classes created by Teacher Dashboard in Google Docs are archived.

From a student’s perspective the following happens:

  • Students Subject folders are renamed to include the academic year suffix.
  • Student Subject folders are removed from their My Drive folder and remain accessible through a My Archive folder, found in ‘Shared with me’.
  • The My Archive folder contains a folder for each academic year, and those folders contain students’ subject folders for the corresponding years.
  • Write access is changed to ‘read-only’ access for Student Subject folders. Any existing content in Student Subject folders remains as is, while any new content added to these folders inherits ‘read-only’ access.

This diagram shows what happens to student subject folders from the student perspective:
