Sharing content in Glow

There are a number of ways to share online content, files and folders using Glow tools and services. We will explore some of the options for sharing here.

Sharing using Teams

Teams offers a range of O365 tools integrated in one place bringing together conversations, content and apps such as OneNote notebooks to enhance collaboration between groups such as classes or staff.

Different types of Team are available: Class, PLC, Staff and Anyone.

Teams can help you to share information and collaborate e.g using Class Teams or a Staff Teams.

Sharing using Sway

Sway can be used to create content such as school newsletters to share with parents and the wider learning community outside of Glow. More information on sharing Sways can be found here.

Sharing using Forms

Forms can be used to can capture information from a wide range of audiences both in and out with Glow. For example using a survey to gather pupil views across a whole school on wider achievements or creating a quiz for formative assessment. Find more information on sharing and collaborating using Forms.

Sharing using Glow Blogs

Glow Blogs can be used to make simple blogs or complex websites and a number of options are available when sharing them.

All Glow Blogs can be kept private to the individual user/group of users; made available to all Glow users; or made public and searchable on the web via search engines such as Google. Visit Glow Blog Help for more information on privacy settings.

Sharing files from Office 365 OneDrive

External sharing has now been enabled and Microsoft O365 OneDrive for Business (OD4B) allows you to share your content with Glow users and non-Glow users.

You can share files such as Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, PDFs and images with non-Glow users. This can be used to support parental engagement, open up partnerships with industry or with teachers and classes in other countries and allow pupils to share files with potential employers . Find out more about external sharing.

Using Yammer for Professional Learning

There are a number of National Yammer communities that have been set up to support Professional Learning across Scotland and allow staff to share resources and ideas. Visit the Yammer page for more information and some links to groups to support Glow and Digital Learning and Teaching.
