How to share multimedia resources with students
Snapplify supports the sharing of multimedia resources. This means that you can share video and audio content with your students, as well as written resources like books, quizzes, worksheets and notes.
Film a science experiment and upload it so that your class can watch it again later; record a lesson and share the audio file for homework or revision purposes; or simply upload a document with additional notes for your students.
Here’s how to get started with Resources:
After logging in to Engage, click ‘Resources’ (towards the bottom left of the Engage dashboard). Next, click ‘Create Resource’ (the green button at the top left of your screen).
The popup will allow you either to upload the file or add the file link to your resource. To upload a file, click on ‘Upload’, and save. A file may be a document or MP3 file, for example.
Under ‘Edit’, you’ll be able to fill in the details for your resource (i.e. title, grade, subject, description, language, and keywords).
Tip: Your file upload will be used as the title (name) of your resource. When uploading a file, name it as you would like the resource in Engage to be titled, to save time.
You will also be able to upload a relevant image to help your students navigate the resources with ease.
If you want to replace the file for a specific resource, you do not need to delete the entire resource. Simply do the following:
- Select the resource you wish to edit/update by clicking on the title of the resource.
- Click ‘Manage File’, which you will find on the right-hand side of your screen.
- In the popup, either upload a new file or add a new link to replace the old upload.
- Once you’ve made the relevant updates, click the ‘Save’ button to apply your changes.
