Teams for Education -- how to create private repls
AUDRARUDYS

I'm using Teams for Education with my students for their final project. They are working in pairs, and created private python code repl files shared with their partners. However, everyone with an account in the class can see and edit everyone's file despite the private setting!! Shouldn't it just be visible to the student(s) the creator shared with? Is this a bug or a feature? Or are we just not using the features correctly?

Appreciate all wisdom / guidance / suggestions!

Yes, I can help you with this problem. I had a similar situation at the beginning of the summer. Have you heard something about the trustmypaper service? I am sure with my students that they will be able to help you with everything. The main thing is to find your assistant. It's not as difficult as you think.

i don't think that's a feature yet, but get the hacker plan for private repls.

@RYANTADIPARTHI, thanks for your quick response! Please elaborate -- its advertised on their website as providing private repls and our school has been paying $35/month for this functionality. What's the hacker plan?

@AUDRARUDYS the hacker plan is when you pay like $5 or something for it. You can have private repls. Check their pricing section.

@RYANTADIPARTHI Thanks for the info. Hacker plan is awesome for individuals to have private repls. For the Teams for Education, I found a work-around -- if I create a project within Teams, students fork their code from the project and can make it private there.

@AUDRARUDYS cool, glad to hear it.
