The Lab-Aids Portal now offers a feature that allows teachers to share a link to a specific page in a book. Students will be able to click on the link shared by teachers and be brought to a specific page in a book. Some students may need to log in first, but they will still be brought to the specific page in the link. 

  • Students must already have access to the book being shared.
  • It might help to be in the one-page view when copying the link.
  • This link can be shared in Google Classroom, even if your school has not integrated the Lab-Aids Portal with Google Classroom. 
  • This link can also be shared with students using the My Uploads / Shared Files feature, or it can be shared in another platform.

If you access the portal through your LMS, click here for LTI-specific instructions.

This page explains how to share a link to a specific page in a book. If you'd like to share a link to a simulation with your students, please click here

 

How to share a link to a specific page in a book:

1. Ensure that your students already have access to the book being linked. If students don't have access to the book you're sharing, they won't be able to open the shared link. The process for getting students access to books depends on your school's rostering method:

  • School accounts/district accounts/Clever/Classlink/Google Classroom/OneRoster API: Teachers need to assign books to students. 
  • Access Codes: Students need to create their accounts with their respective student access code. Please ask your admin for these instructions and the student access code(s).
  • LTI Integration with LMS: If you access the portal through your LMS, click here for LTI-specific instructions.

 

2. Open the student book to the page you want to share with students. (Student books located in the Learning Content > Library menu). 

 

3. Click on the blue "Share link" icon on the top (see below). Then, click the copy icon that appears to copy the link.

  • This will not work if you copy the link from the browser's URL bar. Link must be copied from the blue icon.

Click on the blue "share link" icon

 

4. Share the link by method of your choice.

  • You can share the link directly to Google Classroom (as an assignment or however you please), even if your school has not integrated the Lab-Aids Portal with Google Classroom. 
  • Within the Lab-Aids portal, you can use the My Uploads / Shared Files feature. (Note: Access code teachers won't be able to use this feature.)

 

5. Have students click on the link.  

  • If students are already logged into the portal (such as with My Uploads / Shared Files), they will be brought to the page in the book you linked. 
  • If students are not already logged into the portal, they will be brought to the portal login screen. Have them log into the portal. After a few seconds, they will be brought to the linked page.
  • If students do not yet have access to the book you linked, they will see a message, "You are not currently assigned this book."
