The Files tab shows all resources that can be used inside the current myViewBoard Classroom.

Using the Files tab

To access the Files tab, go to myViewBoard Classroom > Classroom > Files.

Use the Files tab to manage resources for the current classroom.

  1. To use, bind myViewBoard Classroom to your Google account.
  2. After binding, myViewBoard Classroom automatically creates a Classroom folder in the root directory of the user's Google Drive.
  3. Now, whenever a new classroom is created, myViewBoard Classroom adds a subfolder in this Classroom folder, using the new classroom's name as the folder name.

This new subfolder will contain all resources used in that classroom. Note that you can only access the folder assigned to the current classroom.

  • Resources saved here are available via the Magic Box. If you need to insert images, videos or other resources into your lessons, upload them here first.
  • Assignments submitted by students are also saved in this folder but are not visible in the Files tab. To review assignments, go to your Google Drive.
  • Alternatively, you can go directly to Google Drive and manage files and folders there.

Use the file explorer to navigate through the folder's contents. Click the file to see a preview. The Files tab also provides options to create new folders and upload files. Any changes made are automatically updated to the user's Google Drive.

Other myViewBoard Classroom Features

Explore other tabs in the myViewBoard Classroom screen to create more engaging lessons.

The home tab provides an overview of what's current in the class. Use Announcements to communicate with your class in real-time. Since myViewBoard Classroom is integrated with Google Classroom, students can read your posts in Google Classroom.
Provide a lesson plan to accompany the lesson. The lesson plan should either provide an outline of the lesson, or instructions/guidelines on how the lesson should be taught. In case the lesson is shared, this greatly helps others who have decided to use your lesson in their own classrooms.
Create a lesson to present in this classroom. A lesson contains one or more chapters. Lessons can be shared with others. Likewise, you can also use and modify lessons shared by other users.
Use this tab to invite students. Add students to your class by either importing them from Google Classroom, or inviting them through email.
myViewBoard Classroom also allows you to create assignments to test your students' comprehension.
Upload files to use in the classroom. Uploaded files can be inserted into lessons.
