Share/co-author an assignment

There are a few ways to save time and collaborate with other teachers in Actively Learn. You do this from the Collaborate menu located in the Workspace.

Collaboration is limited to your school unless you are on the District Plan. Teachers on the District Plan can collaborate with schools in their district.



Send a copy to colleagues 

When you want a colleague to have a copy of an assignment that they can edit independently, you'll “send a copy to colleagues”. Recipients can independently edit the assignment and use in their own classes, without affecting your original assignment. Changes you make to your assignment will NOT be reflected in your colleagues'. 

On the Free Plan teachers can only receive 3 shared assignments.


To send a copy to colleagues:

STEP 1: Under the "Collaborate" button, select “Send a copy to colleagues”.

Co-author assignments with colleagues [Team Plan]

When you want to work together and have multiple people embed instruction into an assignment, that's when you'll co-author. This acts a lot like co-authoring in a Google Doc!

STEP 1: Under the "Collaborate" button, select “Co-author with colleagues”.

STEP 2: Select the assignment you would like Co-author.

STEP 3: In the search box, type in the names of colleagues you would like Co-author with. Then select “Invite”.

If you wish to stop co-authoring an assignment (in case you want to make any changes on your own), simply duplicate the assignment (under the MORE menu in your Workspace).
