In Schoox it is very easy to share content with others. To share content with the Academy library you have the following options:
1. Add URL or Upload a file through Schoox:
To add a lecture directly to your Academy Library, select Content from your academy navigation bar.
Then click either Add Url or Upload File.
i. Add URL
You can add pages from other web sites. These pages are simple references; nothing from that site will actually be brought into your Library. Examples include YouTube or Vimeo videos, articles, and blogs.
Simply, 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 and click Save. Admins can (optionally) set a date, after which it will be moved to deleted items (Expiration date).
Please Note: You can choose to share this URL with one or more academies or groups you may be a member of, and have the authorization to share content with. You can also put this video directly into a course you have created, as a lecture.
ii. Upload a file
You are also able to add various documents, videos and/or scorm/aicc files to your Library. You have the choice of uploading one or more files from several different sources. Clicking the desired source on the left-hand column will walk you through the steps for that appropriate source.
After uploading the file, you will be taken to the Files in Process page, where you'll have to wait until your file is converted. As with the uploading of 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, add an expiration date if needed and return to your Academy Library.
Please note that when it comes to videos, you have the option to add subtitles by uploading the relevant file (ie. vtt, .srt). Read also the following article for some more details on this: What options are available when editing my library items?
2. By using Schoox's Bookmarking Tool
Another option you have is to use our bookmarking tool to easily share interesting websites you discover while surfing the web with others when you're not in Schoox. To do so, you have to go to our tool page and install our bookmarklet on your browser by following the instructions (it's super easy).
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 on Schoox just click on Add to Schoox and the toolbox we described in the previous section will appear. From there you can decide what you want to do with the URL.
3. By clicking on the share link of a content element
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 that you can use to put this content into your personal library and share it also with others (friends on Schoox, friends outside of Schoox, group members, corporate Academy Library, etc). When you click on this share link you can decide with whom you want to share it. If you are authorized to share content with more than one Academies then all those Academies will show up 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:
3.1 Academy Library
3.2 A group wall or group library
After clicking share, you're redirected to the Academy control panel. Here, you can choose who to share the desired content with. Content material can be shared with Individuals, Groups or Units and Above Units (Advanced share).
If you want to share your material with users based on their job(s) and location, then Advanced Share will work for you.
