Help: The Filing Cabinet

Using Shared File Folders

Registered users of ComPADRE may view folders shared by other users. Below are some example ways to use a set of shared folders:

  • Instructors can quickly access educational resources compiled by colleagues
  • Students can access resources recommended and annotated by their teachers
  • Teachers can maintain an online assignment and "help" venue without overloading busy K-12 school servers.
  • Students can easily share digital physics and astronomy resources with cooperative learning groups, without creating spreadsheets

In addition to viewing the resources in shared folders, registered users can quickly copy selected items into their own filing cabinets, where they can add personal notes and view formatted citations.
