Working with Resources

Engage supports the sharing of multimedia resources. This means that you can share video and audio content with your students, as well as written resources like books, quizzes, worksheets and notes.

Film a science experiment and upload it so that your class can watch it again later; record a lesson and share the audio file for homework or revision purposes, or simply upload a document with additional notes for your students. You can also assign these resources to specific groups of users, such as specific classes or grades.

Log in to engage.snapplify.com using your Snapplify account details, and you’ll be able to access the ‘Resources’ and ‘Groups’ sections on the bottom left of your screen.

Here’s how to get started with Resources and Groups:

Add a resource by uploading a file

  1. After logging in to Engage, click ‘Resources’ (towards the bottom left of the Engage dashboard).
  2. Next, click ‘Create Resource’ (the green button at the top left of your screen).

4. Under ‘Edit’, you’ll be able to fill in the details for your resource (i.e. title, grade, subject, description, language, and keywords).

Tip: Your file upload will be used as the title (name) of your resource. When uploading a file, name it as you would like the resource in Engage to be titled, to save time.

If you want to replace the file for a specific resource, you do not need to delete the entire resource. Simply do the following:

  1. Select the resource you wish to edit/update by clicking on the title of the resource.
  2. Click ‘Manage File’ which you will find on the right-hand side of your screen.
  3. In the popup, either upload a new file or add a new link to replace the old upload.
  4. Once you’ve made the relevant updates, click the ‘Save’ button to apply your changes.

Tip: If a student has already downloaded the previous file to their device, the Snapplify Reader app will need to be refreshed to reflect the latest changes.

Add a resource by linking to a URL

1. From ‘Resources’ (towards the bottom left of the Engage dashboard), navigate to ‘Create Resource’ (the green button at the top left of your screen).

2. The popup will allow you to add the file link to your resource. To do this, copy and paste your link under ‘Add a link to your file’. The link may be to an online video, or to the webpage where a book can be borrowed from your school’s digital library or purchased.

3. Under ‘Edit’, you’ll be able to fill in the details for your resource (i.e. title, grade, subject, description, language, and keywords).

Tip: Your URL will be used as the title (name) of your resource.

4. You will also be able to upload a relevant image to help your students navigate the resources with ease.

If you want to replace the URL, simply do the following:

  1. Select the resource you wish to edit/update by clicking on the title of the resource.
  2. Click ‘Manage File’ which you will find on the right-hand side of your screen.
