How do I collaborate on an asset in PebblePad?

In PebblePad, it is possible to share an asset collaboratively with your peers for group work. This will make you all owners of the asset and able to edit and save it.

NOTE: Only one person may edit the asset at a single time - a message will display informing you that it is currently being edited if you do try and open it when someone else has it open.
