Collections are a quick, easy, and visual way to archive and share materials with users (think Pinterest). On QUBES Hub, you can follow existing collection of materials related to the Visual Classrooms project, add to an existing collection, or create your own collection.
Related materials can include links to the original research paper, books on technology and education, and software 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.
For more information on adding to existing collections or starting your own collection, go to the QUBES Hub wiki
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 Visual Classrooms group here
Resources are a formal way to share and archive finished products with users. Resources keep track of a lot of analytics that could be useful, such as # of downloads, ratings and reviews, people can ask questions, etc. Use the "Start a Contribution" link inside Resources to submit your found resource.
