People often study better in groups where they can share information with each other. RedShelf’s Collaboration feature lets students share notes and highlights in an eBook with other RedShelf students with the same eBook.
Students who use the Collaboration feature fall into one of two roles: those who wish to share their notes and those who wish to subscribe to others’ notes.
Sharing Notes in Collaboration
Sharing your notes allows others to subscribe to your notes and see what and where you annotated in the content.To share the notes and highlights you’ve created in your eBook:
Navigate to the Sidebar Menu and select Collaboration.
- Select Share Notes.
- Create a name for your shared notes and select Start Sharing to generate a group code. You can have multiple groups.
- Copy this code and share with fellow students of the same eBook.
At any time, select Stop Sharing to revoke all access to your notes and highlights to that group.
Subscribing to Notes in Collaboration
Once you have received the group code from the sharer, navigate to the Sidebar Menu and select Collaboration, then Subscribe & View. Enter the sharer’s code in the dialogue box and select Subscribe.
Select View to see their notes:
An indicator in the bottom right of your screen lets you know that you are in a collaboration session and unable to create highlights.
To exit the session, select Close Notes from the left sidebar.
To edit your subscriptions, select Edit and delete your subscriptions as necessary.
