We have Windows 2012 server and I have added another Hardisk on the VM and created a separate drive called "G" on this server and I have created a folder called CourceWK
I would like the Teachers to be able to save and edit any files located within this CourceWK folder. We have a separate security group for teachers and a separate student group in our active directory.
Now when the students log into network PCs, I would like them to be able to do the following: 
  1. List all the files and folders within the CourceWK folder 
  2. I would like them to able to open any files located within the CourceWK folder.
  3. Students should not be able to save to this folder.
Please post step-by-step tutorials to configure permissions and to achieve this.
Once the above permission is set up correctly on the CourceWK folder. I want to map the CourceWK folder as a mapped drive when the student's log in.
I am confident in setting up this through GPO.
Any help much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
