eWorkSpace has two areas that are accessible to our students and understanding where you (and they) should put things will dictate whether or not they will be available for use. The two areas are the subject area and the class area.
When resources are put into the subject area, they are available for all of the classes in that subject(i.e. all of Year 7 English). If a resource has been put into the class area, it may only be accessible to that class (only 7A).
The wider implication of this is that, as the class names change from semester to semester (particularly in VCE) and year to year (7A to 7someoneelse), those resources will no longer be available if they were attached to a class.
To publish resources in the subject area, rather than the class area, go to the class (by clicking on the hyperlink on your eWorkSpace home screen) and then click the Subject Home button (pictured below) at the top, left-hand side of that screen. You should have the same options – Publication Area, Blog, etc. – but the frame around the page will have changed from blue to green. Publishing in this area will mean that all classes in this subject will have access to these materials.
To review how to add resources to the Publication area, check out this post, to create a blog using eWorkSpace, click here.
