Sharing collections with students

Sharing your collections with students on Wakelet is a straightforward process that promotes collaboration and interaction within your classroom. Whether you're creating a new collection or moving an existing one to a classroom, you can effortlessly share it and define access permissions for your students. Here's how to do it:

Step 1: Access the Share Button

  1. Once you've created or moved a collection to a classroom, locate the collection you want to share.
  2. In the upper-right corner of the collection, you'll find the 'Share' button. Give it a click to initiate the sharing process.

Step 2: Choose Access Permissions

  1. Upon clicking 'Share', a dialog box will appear. Within this box, you'll see a dropdown menu labeled 'No access'. Click on the dropdown menu to unveil a list of access options.
  2. From the list, simply select 'Can add'. This permission level enables students to contribute to the collection.
  3. Now share the link with your students.

Step 3: Customize Permissions (Optional)

  1. Once you've selected 'Can add', you have the flexibility to further customize permissions for your students using the 'Contributors' section of the share dialog box.
  2. Click on the 'Can add' option within the contributors section. This will provide additional choices:
    • Can view: This option allows students to view the collection without the ability to make changes.
    • Can add: Students can add their own content to the collection, but they won't be able to edit existing items.
    • Can edit: This highest permission level lets students not only add their content but also edit the entire collection, including items contributed by others.
