People sometimes study better in groups because 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 your notes allows others to subscribe to your notes and see any annotations you've made.To share the notes and highlights you’ve created in your eBook, navigate to the Sidebar Menu and select Collaboration, then 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 it with your classmates.
Select Stop Sharing at any time to cancel the group's access to your notes and highlights.
Subscribing to Notes
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:
A message in the bottom right corner 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.
