Many people who support student learning, like tutors, counselors, paraprofessionals, afterschool professionals, siblings, and other relatives, may not have School Loop accounts or right permissions to reach the instructional materials. Therefore, School Loop makes it easy for teachers to share instructional materials. This article provides information on protecting copyrighted materials while sharing the instructional materials.
Protecting the Copyrighted Materials
To protect copyrighted materials, or to keep the course content restricted in general, teachers should follow the process below:
- Create a minisite.
- Make it private.
- Copy the copyrighted documents to the minisite for distribution.
For more information about minisites, please review this article on Understanding Use of Minisites in School Loop.
Keeping the Documents Totally Private
To keep the documents totally private, teachers should follow the steps below:
- Store the documents in a private Curriculum Group or personal locker.
- Copy them to the Minisite Locker to make them downloadable.
For more information on the curriculum group feature, please review the Curriculum Groups - Introduction article.
