Publishing - FAQs
  • What is publishing? “Publishing” a collection means to make it available to all the users in your organization on the Learning Explorer platform.
  • What happens when I publish a collection? After you publish a collection, it becomes available in search. 
  • Who can see my published collection? Only you and other users in your school or district will be able to find it.
  • Do I have to publish my collection? No, by default all of your collections are private unless you decide to publish.
  • Why should I publish my collection? Depending on how you design your collection, whether it’s intended for student-facing use, for teacher-only use, or for both student-and-teacher use, you may decide it’s worth putting out there for other teachers to use. If so, you’re allowing others to use your collection as a framework for their own, and remix it to fit their own instructional needs.
  • I don’t see the option to publish. Why? If you are not seeing the option to publish, you may not have permission. Contact your district administrator if you think you need to be given publishing rights.
  • Why won’t my collection publish?! Check the Publish Collection button on the left. If it’s not green, the collection isn’t ready yet. Hover over it to find out what’s missing.

Remixing Collections

Did you find a collection in search that you really like, but want to make a few adjustments? Just save it!

Once you decide to save a collection that another user created and published, you then have the option to edit, reorganize, and differentiate. This is called Remixing!

1. Click on a folder collection  in search to open the review page.

2. Click Save.

3. View the collection in your curriculum manager to begin remixing.

Remixing - FAQs
  • What is remixing? 
  • How do I publish a remixed collection?
  • What happens when I publish a remixed collection? After you publish a remixed collection, it becomes available in search along side the originally published collection. The original collector is given credit, and the remixer will be listed as you.
  • If I save a folder and remix it, does it affect the original collection? No. When you save a collection to your curriculum manager, you are making a copy of that folder. Edits and changes will not reflect in the published folder.
  • Why should I publish my remixed collection? 
  • I’ve started remixing a collection, but I don’t see the option to publish. Why? If you are not seeing the option to publish, you may not have permission. Contact your district administrator if you think you need to be given publishing rights.
  • Why won’t my collection publish?! Check the Publish Collection button on the left. If it’s not green, the collection has not been remixed enough. Hover over it to find out what additional changes need to be made.

Sharing Folders

Collaboration begins with sharing collection folders. In this section, you will discover how to share collections with users in your organization and set sharing permissions accordingly. 

Launch your Curriculum Manager to get started. You can easily share collections from My Resources, as well as access collections/folders that have been Shared With Me

1. In My Resources select the collection you wish to share by clicking the Actions tab.

2. Choose Share from the menu of actions.

3. Start typing in the name or email address of the person with whom you want to share your collection, and select them from the list. You can continue adding more users by typing additional names/emails.

4. You can adjust sharing permissions for each person once they are added here. Click Share Folder when you are ready to share.

5. The status of the collection is now updated to “Shared.”

Sharing Permissions

As the owner of a folder, you can set the sharing permissions for each added shared user. Setting sharing permissions allows you to control how the shared users are interacting with your collection. The same is true when another user shares a folder with you. 

Before you start sharing, determine a strategy for collaboration. Be sure to communicate the strategy to the shared users based on the permissions you give them (can view, or edit).

This section outlines the roles of both the Owner and the Shared User of a given collection based on two types of sharing permissions.

"Can View" Sharing Permissions

The owner of a folder can set permissions for each shared user added to a collection, which means they:

  • Have access to the shared folder and can see/follow any changes made in the shared folder by the folder owner
  • Can play the collection
  • Can “Copy” the shared folder to create a private copy of the shared folder where they can edit or assign the folder to students

Show or hide folder details. Hide Details hides the status and the date the folder was last modified. Show details displays the folder name, type, status, and date last modified.
