What is Sharing?

Your Frog VLE utilises the latest technology to allow you to share content with other users in you school. Sites, calendars and files can be shared to both teachers and students. When sharing, you will be given the choice of sharing either publicly or privately. Public sharing allows everyone logged in to the VLE to have access while private is shared only to those who you have specified.
The ability to share allows content stored on the VLE to be distributed almost instantly. You also have the option to share publicly on the web, allowing the site to be accessed by anyone, including users that have not logged into the Frog VLE.
This section will explain how sites and files can be shared both publicly and privately.

What are the Sharing Options?

Before you begin building, please take a moment to think about how you would like users to access your site. You have 3 options:

View Only Site: This site has been created to display information for a topic, course or co-curricular activity. A site to display School information such as events, courses or staff information for example.
View and Contribute Site: This site is an interactive site that has been created for a topic, course or co-curricular activity. For example, you may create a site asking your students opinion on a particular topic. By adding a Forum or a Wall Widget, students can add their comments directly into the site for their teacher to evaluate.
Edit and Manage Site: This is a site that has been created for a topic, course or co-curricular activity that certain students have access to edit and populate themselves. For example, you may create an environmental site to highlight the good work your school is doing reducing waste. You could give edit rights to a group of students to help you populate the site with content. They would then have access to edit the pages and create or update content. This method makes the site more involving for both teachers and students alike.
Tip: To enhance student engagement ask your students if there are any sites that they would like to manage themselves independently. These can be set up by teachers and access given to a student to create and manage. These may be general interest topics such as on-line video gaming, book and film reviews or existing clubs within the school.

How to Share a Site

Once your site is complete it can either be shared or assigned. Sharing a site places it in the sites area of the FrogDrive to those that you specify can access it. Assigning a site sends a copy of your site directly to a student (or group) as an assignment to be completed. It is helpful to remember that assigning a Site requires a mark to be given whereas sharing a site does not.
Begin by closing the Content Panel. Sites cannot be shared or assigned while in edit mode. Click on the Share button in the Frog Bar. This will open the Share or Assign window.

 Public in the school – A Public in the school site can be accessed by any logged in user of your VLE. Specific users and groups can be given higher levels of access if named explicitly.
Public on the web – A Public in the web site can be accessed by anyone, including users that have not logged into your VLE. Specific users and groups can be given higher levels of access if named explicitly.
