Socius - Document Posting Tutorial

Overview

Socius: (pronounced so-KEY-us) is the Latin word for sharing. This system was created by DuPage High School District 88 to facilitate the sharing of information between staff and students.

This system currently is divided into two major components, document sharing and the application directory. In this tutorial, we will discuss the steps required to share a document or a folder. To demonstrate the steps required, a video tutorial is below.

  10. Now we can share the folder by clicking on the List Documents link on the left-hand panel (to bring you back to your home folder)
  11. Locate the folder you created and click on the share icon associated with that folder
  12. In the share dialog, we will share the folder with all staff members by selecting All Staff under share type.
  13. Ensure that share type is set to View Only so that users don't add or remove any files to your directory and click Share
