Publishing Work Online & Student Portfolios

Here is where Wixie really shines! Everything that is created in Wixie can be shared safely and securely online!

Each individual project that students create in Wixie can be shared and viewed online. Students also have the options to add projects to their Student Portfolio for online viewing as well. Both require a Project Key which keeps student work secure.

Publishing Individual Projects

When students finish a project that they want to publish it online. They should select the Wixie Hand and then select Share. They will notice that in the Projects page their work now has a blue share icon in the upper left hand corner.

Students Sharing with Others

The easiest way for students to share their published work is directly from the project using the Send Menu. Options include copying project URL, copying project embed code, exporting the file as images, pdf, flash, html, ePub or printing the file.

For example, if a student is working on their own Blog and they want to embed a project on their blog, they should click Send > Copy Project Embed > Select size of Project. This will copy the code to their clipboard. Students can then paste into their blog or other website to share their project. (Kudos to Jen Wong for sharing this at our Wixie Mixie)

Teachers Sharing Student Work with Others

If the teacher wants to share URL's and Public Keys with parents in an easy way, they should start by downloading the Student Project List for the class.

From the Teachers Home Screen they should click Students, Select the class that has shared projects. Below the list of students click the link in the Export Box : Student Project List. This will create an Excel spreadsheet with a sheet for each student containing a URL for each project that they have created. There will also be a Summary sheet at the very end with all projects for that class.

You can easily take the Excel document and use it in a Mail Merge to send out information to parents or create a class Symbaloo board with hyperlinks to student projects for classroom sharing.
