Categories are collections of Resources. You can copy existing Categories or create new ones from scratch. Categories can be customised with different names, wallpapers, and icons to suit your lessons.
From the Category management page you can see the Categories in your organisation.
Click on a Category to edit it or add a new Category using the Add New Category link on the Action bar.
Note: If you can’t find a particular Category you are looking for, try applying a filter from the search box on the right hand side of the screen. For example, if you change the user drop down menu to “Me”, you’ll only see Categories you have created.
The Category editing page shows roughly how the Category will look on the LearnPad.
You can edit the name of a Category by clicking on the title at the top and you can edit the icon and wallpaper using the Edit bar on the right-hand side. You can also add new web links and files from the Edit bar. At the bottom of the page beneath the resource list, ou can add instructions for your students that will appear down the left-hand side of the screen on your LearnPads.
You can remove resources from the Category by dragging them to the drawer icon or by double-clicking them. You can reorder resources by dragging them around on the “tablet”.
Below the tablet is a list of resources that have been selected for or added to your organisation. To add any of these to your Category, drag them onto the “tablet” or double-click them. As with the Category view, you can apply a filter to find specific Resources.
