How to Copy a Project from the Cloud

The steps below describe how to copy a project from the cloud so that you can use it with your students.

The project cloud includes pre-made projects from educators in your school, your school group and the myON community. You can copy and re-use these projects as-is, or you can edit them for your students.

  1. If you are a Teacher, click Classroom, then Projects. If you are a School Administrator, click My School, then Projects. If you are a Group Administrator, click My Group, then Projects.
  2. On the My Projects page, click the cloud icon.
  3. select the cloud icon

  4. Search for a subject. For this example, we will use "countries" as a subject for the project. We are trying to find whether another teacher has shared a project related to countries to the cloud. (See below.)

    As you search, you can select the filter button for more search options. On the "Shared by" tab, you can choose whether to see projects shared by your school, your school group, other school groups or myON. On the Task Types tab, you can choose to search for projects with specific kinds of tasks. On the Book Categories tab, you can choose to search for projects about a specific subject/category. On the Year Levels tab, you can choose to find projects for a range of specific years.

    Once you search, you will see the matching projects To view information about any project, click the eye icon in the top right corner of the project card.

    Any additional information on this project that the teacher shared will be available; if the project has more than one type of task, the tasks will all be listed. If you choose to use this project, click Copy to My Projects, and the project will be sent to the list of your projects.

    select Copy to My Projects

    The copied project will open. Once the project has been copied, you can edit project information or change tasks. For example, you can add/remove books from the reading task, remove tasks and/or assign other tasks just as if you made the project yourself. Be sure to change the title; this will differentiate your copy of the project from the original and from other projects. Make sure you save your new copy of the project by selecting Save in the top right corner; this is necessary even if you have not changed the project.

    You will now see your copy of the project in your Inactive Projects. You can assign this project to students just as you would a project that you created.

Teachers and administrators can share projects to the community project pool. Mark your project as shared if you want others to benefit from the work you did to create projects. When you choose to share a project, a copy of the project is shared with the community at that point in time; any changes you make to your personal copy later will not be made in the cloud copy.
