asked on 

Setting up permissions - So that user can view and open files on a mapped drive and should not be able to save files to the drive.

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

Agree with Andrew, this should do the trick.

Will the permission needs set only after the CourceCW share is created.
you can also use the share permissions
teachers read/write
students read

Yes, you'll want to set those permissions after creating the share. This may help as well:
