This page explains how teachers can direct students to a specific page in a book by sharing the page's specific link in a platform such as Google Classroom. With this process, students can click on a link and be brought to the page in question without needing to navigate to the page/activity on their own.
- Students must already have access to the book being shared.
- This link can be shared in Google Classroom, even if your school/district has not integrated the Lab-Aids Portal with Google Classroom (i.e. customers who log in through Clever, Classlink, etc.).
- If you'd instead like to share a link to a simulation with your students, please click here.
- If you instead access the portal through your LMS (Canvas, Schoology, etc.), click here for LTI-specific instructions.
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:
- Most accounts: 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. For best results, ensure you are in the one-page view. (Student books are located in the Student Content > Content menu).
3. Click on the blue "Share link" icon on the top bar (see screenshot). Then, click the paper/copy icon in the popup to copy the link.
4. Share the link with students in Google Classroom or by method of your choice and have students click on the link.
- You can share this link in Google Classroom, even if your school has not integrated with Google Classroom. In this scenario, students may be prompted to log in, so please ensure students know how to log in. For example, remind them to click on the "Log in with Clever" button, "Log in with Classlink" button, manually enter their username and password, etc.
- If students are already logged into the portal, they will be brought to the page in the book you linked.
- If students are not already logged into the portal, they may be brought to the portal login screen. Have them log into the portal (students may need to be reminded how to log in). 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."
