What is Discover?

Discover is a quick search tool for content. It pulls content from My Library (after it is added through the FrogStore) as well as from the Internet (through Flickr and YouTube).
Discover can be accessed either from the Quick Launch menu or from within several Widgets within the Frog platform. These include the Media, Link to File and the External Link Widgets. Discover can also be accessed when adding media items to a quiz such as images and videos.
