How do I upload my own resources?

It’s very simple to integrate your existing resources with Dynamic Learning. 
 
You can upload any resource by using the Lesson Builder - click the ‘Upload resource’ button, browse your computer and select your resource.

How do I use the lesson builder to plan lessons?

The lesson builder is a great way to group together a number of different types of resources which you can access from a single browser window.

You can either create a lesson using the top navigation, or from within your title.
  1. Click ‘Create new lesson’
  2. Give your lesson a name and assign it to a folder
  3. Use the cog to add resources to your lesson
  4. Your lessons can easily be shared with colleagues and students.

You can drag and drop resources to change the order of resources within your Lesson, and use the cog to rename resources or delete.
