Managing Existing Resources

Each resource will include a dropdown to the far right where you can manage its visibility and details. These options include:

Resource Options  
Edit Resources This action allows minor changes to the resource title, description, or tags. (Note, you cannot change a resource file or link once the resource is saved. A new resource must be created.)
Publish Resources This action makes the resource both searchable and accessible to users within your organization via the Resource Library.
Archive Resources This action causes a resource to become unsearchable and inaccessible to users of the Resource Library but maintains usage history. (For example, you can hide the previous year's version but still retain useful data.)
Delete Resources This action removes the resource and all the associated usage history from the system. (Note, a deletion cannot be reversed, so we recommend you use this option with caution.)

Adding a Resource

In addition to managing existing resources, a user with the proper permissions can also add a new resource to their organization's content.

To do this, click the Add a Resource button in the upper right corner of the Resource page.

Paste a Link

You can alternately paste a link into the provided box.

Note that the system will prompt you to categorize this link as either a video, file (PDF), or alternate resource (article, blog, etc.) with the exception of YouTube or Vimeo links. (Videos in private YouTube or Vimeo channels are not supported at this time.)

Once complete, you can click Add & Edit Resource to further manage the options affiliated with this new resource.

Editing a Resource

Once you add a resource, you can determine its affiliated details. This includes a title, description, applicable grades, subjects, topics, etc. (Note, these details aid in search results once the resource is created).
