Sharing Resources Publicly

This post is probably most useful for teachers, but students could use it too.

Say you’re wanting to share a standard set of resources for your subject? It could be a useful collection of standard links, or a selection of great revision videos. You’re wanting to share them with anyone who is studying your subject without having to add your new students each year. How can you do this? Simple, make them public.

Public Launchpad

If you’re wanting to share a collection of links, add them all as tiles to a Launchpad. Then all you need to is click on ‘Share’ on the drop down menu next to the plus sign.

In the pop window that opens, select the ‘Anyone’ tab and follow the instructions.

This will give you a link which you can share with your students by putting it on your subject website, twitter bio, or in your Google Classrooms.

When students click on the link, they can access and use your Launchpad. Even better, they get the option to add that Launchpad to their own Airhead so that they always have access to it:

You can do the same with Flightdecks. This means you can for example share a collection of playable YouTube clips, Twitter feeds or anything else which you can add as a widget.

It works in the same way. Share button:
