LabXchange makes sharing your favorite articles, exercises or other content easy, and this article will explain how.
Sharing Public Content
With the exception of Question Sets, which require users to register, any of the content found in our public Library can be shared with anyone on the Internet.
If you find an article, simulation etc. that you would like to show to your friends, colleagues or classmates, select the Share link from the menu at the top right.
This will provide you with options to share the content on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google Classroom. Finally, you can also copy the direct link (URL) to your clipboard in order to share the content via email or text message. You can also use the LabXchange messaging system or post the link to the our community forums, but note that these are only available for registered users.
Sharing Private Content
Registered LabXchange users can create their own content which is then saved to their dashboard. This content can also be shared, but only with other registered LabXchange users. In order to share privately saved content, go to your dashboard and select the My content option, then click a piece of content you have previously saved.
Once the content has loaded, copy the URL (web address) from your browser's address bar. You can then send this link to another user via LabXchange messaging system, post it to the community forums, or send it to them via email etc.
When it comes sharing multiple pieces of content, it may be easier to create a pathway or even a class to share them all at once. Pathways will let you share a mix or private and public assets in an order you choose, while classes allow content to be easily added and removed. As such, a pathway is often helpful for sharing content with a specific theme, while a class may be a better option for sharing varied content with the same group of users.
