Who can I share with?

You can share resources with faculty (teachers and administrators) at your school or organization, or with users with whom you're connected.

Share Resources Publicly

You can also share any of your personal Resources with the Schoology Community in Public Resources.

Share a resource publicly to the Schoology Community

To make your Resources public, follow these steps:

  1. Click Resources along the top of the page.
  2. Click the bookshelf icon to the right of the item you would like to make public to share in public resources.
  3. Fill out the pop-up form to provide information to Schoology users who may be looking for your research.
    (Title, Info, Grade Level, Resource Type, and Tags can be filtered during a search by other educators).
  4. Choose a Subject.
  5. Select Make Public to complete.
Note: Tests/Quizzes cannot be publicly shared. Instead, you can share test/quiz questions by creating and sharing a Question Bank.

Once an item has been made public, you will see a globe icon below the Resource name in your personal collection:

2. Click Update so that the changes made to your personal version are updated in the public version of the resource as well.
