How students can view tutorials that a colleague has created
Mike Whichard
Hello!!! So, I'm really excited about using Sophia next year. As a first year teacher last year, I was fortunate enough to visit other schools to observe veteran teachers. One teacher I observed introduced me to Sophia due to my interest in flipping the classroom. She allowed me access to her group, which then allowed me access to her tutorials, which are fabulous. She has given me permission to use them in my class next year; however, when I add her tutorials to my playlists for my OWN group then I try to access as a student (I created a "test" account) the system says "Opps, the tutorial is no longer available." When I'm logged in as the teacher, I can access the playlist and tutorial just fine. Please help!!! Does my teacher friend need to change her publish settings? Does she need to join my group? I've also made sure my publish settings are set to my group. Thank you again!

There are a couple of possible solutions. She could simply change her publishing option to "the world" which makes it available to you and other users. Great teachers are always appreciated since others can share the talent with students. Another possibility is for you to have her join your group and make her a co-owner. Once done, you should be able to see her tutorial in the group as a student. Because a tutorial can only be owned by one author, this would be the work around the private group setting. Let me know if you need more info!
