iOS SOS: mobile users need your help!

As more of our students are using devices such as iPads and iPhones – which do not have Microsoft packages installed – we need to change the way we save items in eShare so that students can view them whichever device they are using.

 PDF is the way forward!

There’s a simple solution – save your document as a PDF, then upload it to eShare.

If you already have a document saved in eShare in a Microsoft package such as Word follow these step-by-step instructions to swap the document without losing the URL.

Remember, if you want students to access documents, you must set the Viewing Permissions to ‘University’ or ‘World’.

If you have any queries regarding eShare or would like to arrange a group or 1:1 training session please contact eshare@edgehill.ac.uk.

eShare – staff development

What is eShare? Why do we have it? How can it benefit me?

Come along on Wednesday 16th January for an introduction to our digital repository for teaching and learning and see how you can make the most of eShare.

eShare offers you the opportunity to showcase your work to the world, store presentations, videos and images in an easily accessible way and find ready-made, adaptable materials for your teaching.

In this hands-on session you will:

  • Create a profile – your profile can then be used for departmental webpages, EHRA and CV creation.
  • Learn how to search the repository for teaching resources, guides to teaching and learning technologies and learning resources.
  • Upload your own items – copyright and creative commons will be explained and demystified.
  • Enjoy the benefits of sharing with a Cake Tasting session!
