A new personal library is created for teachers and administrators, in which course elements can be created. The elements can be used in multiple courses, or shared with other users. In courses, elements from My library are added from the Ready-to-use content list of resources.
My library is available as a new tab, and provides teachers' with an overview of their elements. Currently only pages can be added, but more elements will be added later on.
The most important we have accomplished with the first version of My library is to allow teachers to reuse their own content in multiple courses. A teacher can now add the same page in 20 courses and update it in all courses with a few clicks in the library. This is incredibly time-saving!
Elements created in My library can be shared on three different levels: school, site and community. The last option allows you to share your content with all itslearning users across the world – regardless of site. We encourage teachers to create content that can be reused globally! Content from other users can be found by clicking Add content from My library while in a course, and search for content.
