Let’s collaborate on Campus….  My Big Campus!

My Big Campus (MBC) is an online social learning environment that allows educators to collaborate with each other to share lesson ideas, assessments, and resources.   Each teacher has full rights then to edit and share that resource with their own students on Campus.  Let’s take a quick look at the MBC Library of resources, Bundles, and Groups in MBC.

My Big Campus Library

Library

My Big Campus has done a great job of creating “How-To” videos and resources for personalizing learning on MBC.   The following link is for the How-To bundle on the MBC Library.

The greatest pieces of the sharing puzzle in the MBC Library is that all the resources in the library are curated there by educators.   While you are searching for topics you are teaching it is comforting to know that what you are seeing has been collected and placed there by other educators.  When you find a useful resource you can share it with your students or copy it and make edits before sharing it.  The library includes YouTube videos, websites, images, documents, and bundles all searchable by topic, name, tag, and author.  Check it out!

My Big Campus Bundles

Bundles LogoThink of Bundles as containers that hold any digital resource you would like to share with others.  Documents, presentations, websites, images, text, videos, iBooks, apps, and assignments can all be housed in a bundle.   Once you have things ready in a bundle, you can share it with anyone you want, even if they are not in MBC.   Any future changes that you make to the bundle are then immediately also shared with all that have access to it.  Check out this “How-To” bundle on Bundles!

 My Big Campus Groups

Groups LogoMy Big Campus Groups give you a location for all of your online classroom activities and resources.  Now that you have searched the library and created bundles of resources for your classes you can share them all in groups.   A group in my big campus represents a class, team, after school group, or even a PLN of teachers sharing resources with each other.   In groups, you can make announcements for all group members to see, create discussions around a topic or resource, share your resources, or even assign schoolwork.   Check out the “How-To” resource on groups in MBC!
