Natasha is referring to a ‘role’ permission, however, for many professors that would not be an ideal option if you were planning to use Brightspace for anything other than to transmit documents. Reducing students to ‘observers’ would not enable you to use the platform for discussions or submitting work, for example. If you just want to share documents, it would be easier to use a shared folder like one drive. You could link it on Brightspace and then set the folder protections.
