Now that you have added resources to your bookshelf, you can share them with:

  • An entire class
  • Specific students
  • Student groups
  • Teachers

A few notes regarding sharing resources:

  • You can share both individual resources AND folders. 
  • If you add a resource to a folder you've shared, any user with that folder will have access to the newly-added resource. There is no need to re-share the folder.
