Adding content into a personal library

In Schoox it is very easy to share content with others (friends, co-workers, corporate library, etc). To share content with the Academy library you have the following options:

1. Add a URL or upload a file through Schoox :
To add a lecture directly to your Academy library, select Library in your academy navigation bar (with your academy logo on the left). Then click either ADD URL or UPLOAD FILE.


1A) 'Add URL'

You can add pages from other websites as lectures. These are simply references; nothing from other sites will actually be brought into your library. Examples include YouTube or Vimeo videos, articles, and blogs.


To add, click the Add URL button, enter the site’s address into the space provided, and click Fetch.

In the window that appears, fill in the appropriate information, turn the Personal Library toggle to Yes, share the lecture where needed, and click Add to Schoox.

Please Note: You may share this video with one or more academies or groups that you are a member of/have the authorization to share content with that academy or group. You can also put this video directly into a Course that you have created, as a 'lecture'.


1B) 'Upload a file'

You are also able to add various documents, videos, and/or scorm files to your library.

You have the option of uploading one or more files from several different sources. Clicking the desired source in the left-hand column will walk you through the steps for that appropriate source.


After the upload process ends, you will be taken to the uploader page, where you'll wait for your file to convert. Similar to uploading web-based material, you are given the option to share the file. You can share it, for example with groups, or put it directly as a lecture into a Course. When finished, save your file and return to your academy library.

2. Using Schoox's bookmarking tool

Another option you is to use our bookmarking tool to easily share interesting websites you discover when you're not on the Schoox site. To do so, go to our tool page and install our bookmarklet on your browser:

Once you have installed the bookmarklet on your browser you will see the "Add to Schoox" bookmarklet on your favorite toolbar. Whenever you discover something interesting just click on Add to Schoox and the toolbox we described in the previous section will appear for your URL.

3. Using the share link

Schoox is a very powerful content-sharing tool. Wherever you discover an interesting piece of content (e.g. a file or a bookmarked weblink) you will be given a share link to then put into your personal library and can then share it with others (i.e. friends on Schoox, friends outside of Schoox, group members, corporate Academy Library, etc). When you click on this share link you will see the color box below to decide with whom you want to share it. If you are authorized to share content with more than one Academy then all of your Academies will be displayed in the sharing menu.

Schoox is a social learning and content management platform. You can discover content that you can easily share with others and with your corporate library on places like:

3A) The public library on Schoox (i.e. the place where all publicly shared content appears)

3B) A group wall or group library (groups are a very powerful collaboration & knowledge sharing tool)


After clicking share, a pop-up window appears; you can then choose who you want to share this content with. It could be friends, Groups, or Academies. You can even share content by sending an email.
