How to Fill up the Best Resources Library

The Best Resources section is an organized library of links/resources that you wish to share with your users. It uses a catalog structure and a quick navigation component so that your users can easily sort through the library and find the resources they are looking for. Users can always mark a resource as "Favorite" or start a discussion on it. 


1. Click on Settings → Learning Apps → Best Resources.

2. To add a new top-level category, within which you will be adding your first link, click on the + (plus) icon. You can also add a new category, by clicking on Add Category

3. Write the title and the description of your top-level category and click on Add.

4. Click on the category you created and click the plus icon to add a subcategory.

5. Provide a title and description for your subcategory and click on Add.

6. Browse to the subcategory you just created and click on the plus icon to insert the desired link.

7. Add the title, URL, and a short description of your resource. 

If you wish to see the fetched images and get a Preview of the resources you have added just click on the top Preview button. Those images are automatically fetched from the respective external link's metadata information. 

If you would like to edit any of the existing content, click on the Edit (pencil icon).

How to Customize your Best Resources page

Hide the default metadata images

There can be the case when you wish to completely hide the metadata images that were fetched from the links/resources you added. All you need to do is add in your school's Custom Code <style> (CSS) for built-in pages (i.e social, profile, workpad, my account) the following snippet:

.slug-workpad .basic-card-image {
display: none;
}

All the fetched images will then get hidden.

Hide the Twitter icon

Additionally, you may want to hide the Twitter icons.

In that case, add in your school's Custom Code <style> (CSS) for built-in pages (i.e social, profile, workpad, my account) the following snippet:

.slug-workpad .basic-card-caption-but-wrapper .tweet-action {
display: none;
}

Hide the Red ribbons

You may want to hide the default red ribbons on the corners:

Then add in your school's Custom Code <style> (CSS) for built-in pages (i.e social, profile, workpad, my account) the following snippet:

.slug-workpad .ribbon-corner-right{ 
display: none;
}
.slug-wordpad .ribbon-corner-left{
display: none;
}

Hide the whole cards

To hide the whole cards add in your school's Custom Code <style> (CSS) for built-in pages (i.e social, profile, workpad, my account) the below snippet:

#wpWrapper {display: none;}

Users will see no cards but will still be able to choose the resources on the left catalog menu.

My Notebook

My Notebook is the resource of each user's personal collection of ebook notes & highlights. When a user is studying an Ebook learning activity they can highlight the text, make notes, add stars, or comment on social media for a particular part of the text. You will find more information about it in this article.


After keeping their personal ebook notes and highlights users can visit My Notebook in the Best Resources, view all of them all, and visit the respective Ebook learning activity that is linked under each note/highlight.

Notes: 

  • When you perform a search via the search bar, it returns results from the Best Resources as well as results from the Daily News app.
  • To change the order of the resources, you can edit them and add numbers [ i.e. 1) or 1.) or 1. ] at the beginning of the title of each category.
