The Community Tool
There are three tabs in the community tool:
- My community
- My library
- My profile
The my community tab acts as a personal dashboard. It is where you can quickly find the resources and profiles that have been bookmarked.
Under the my library tab, are projects and activities that have been saved to your my library from your course or while searching in the community.
Items that have been saved to my library also show up on the right side of the screen when in edit mode of a course. Easily drag and drop items into your course.
