Note: The Content App and My Library feature are only available to schools that have NTN Content & Community licensing included in their contract with New Tech Network. Contact your school leadership for more information on your school's contract.
The my library tool is a place where teachers can:
- copy and store items they would like to use across courses
- copy and store activity templates that they can simply drag and drop into their course anytime
- copy and store items from the community to use in their own course(s)
- copy and store items they found in a co-teacher's course that they would like to use in their own course
- and more...
Anything saved to a teacher's my library is a static copy of the original and can simply be dragged and dropped into any of their courses to be used as their own or to share across courses.
A teacher's my library can be seen and accessed in two different places
- The my library tab within the community tool
- The my library tab within a course's editor tool
