Ask a question

There are forums where threaded discussions are going on. They are moderated. Check out the discussion and join in!


Work with collections of related materials

Collections are a quick, easy, and visual way to archive and share materials with users (think Pinterest). On QUBES Hub, you can follow existing collections of materials related to REMNet, add to an existing collection, or create your own collection.

To see existing collections of materials related to the REMNet modules, click on the "Collections" tab in the main menu bar. Related materials can include links to the original research paper, Encyclopedia of Life entries with natural history info, and animations of relevant topics and processes.

To be notified when new posts are made to a collection, you can "follow" it by clicking on the "Follow" button in the upper right hand corner of the collection. New posts will show up in your Dashboard's live Collections feed.

                        

 


Share your customized labs with other interested faculty

Post to an existing collection or start your own collection to share your customized labs with interested faculty. For more information on how to work with collections, visit the QUBES Knowledge Base article on Collections. Collection posts keep track of a lot of analytics that could be useful, such as # of likes, # of followers, and comments from users.


Create a collaborative workspace

Projects are collaborative workspaces that facilitate file sharing and group work. Projects feature a variety of functions that support group work, including a to-do list management that allows users to assign tasks to group members. Start a project in the REMNet group here.
