Where is my course?

Each course is put in a folder with the year that Informatics lists the course to be run for. You can view all courses and their associated years at course.inf.ed.ac.uk.

Sharing

When you share a link (see types of links below), only people who are added to the Better Informatics Team Drive have access.

Type Example URL
Folders https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0AIKEqWfeWuQQUk9PVA
Files https://docs.google.com/document/d/1W1xVJs_RvV3KBbk1bKjsDvYUyUitER4jVbuae-nUFx8/edit

If you share one of the above links directly, users without access will be presented with the below interface:

Google Drive request access

This is bad! There is an automated system to add users to the Team Drive.

You can just click the join team drive link at the top, and this will just prompt you to log in and associate your Informatics DICE account (to prove you’re an inf student) with a Google account (to use Google Drive).

If you would like to directly send a link to someone in a group chat… copy the bolded bit in the URLs above and paste it in the section indicated below by ID_HERE:

https://betterinformatics.com/drive?next=ID_HERE

For example, the following URL https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0AIKEqWfeWuQQUk9PVA would produce https://betterinformatics.com/drive?next=0AIKEqWfeWuQQUk9PVA.

(todo: replace these annoying instructions with a little edit box that auto-converts it for you)
