Why haven't I received an invitation to the community sent by my colleague?
How do I create a new Community?
How can I share resources with other members of the community?
Communities provide users with the ability to communicate and collaborate with educators from across the Commonwealth via threaded discussion forums and blogs. Communities may be comprised of educators who teach the same Subject Areas or Grade Levels, or may focus on a particular instructional strategy or professional interest.
In the upper right corner of the screen, click MySAS, then click on Communities. Click Find a Community, and then enter a Keyword into the Keyword Search tool to search for a Community, or browse the full list of Communities.
My colleague said they sent me an email invitation to join a community, and I haven't received it. What should I do?
It sounds like the email may have not passed through a filter in your district's email system. Check your "Junk Email" or "Bulk Email" folder to see if it was misdirected there. You can also go to the Communities page. Any invitations that were sent to you will appear there as well. Click the Accept button to join the Community.
I can't find a Community I'd like to join. Is there a way to start a new Community?
Click Communities on MySAS, and then click Find a Community. Click on the Create a New Community button, and enter a Suggested Name and Purpose for the new Community. Click Submit, and the request will be sent to the appropriate administrators.
I want to share some materials that I created with Members of my Community. Is that possible?
In each Community there is an area called Shared Content, which allows users to share content with other members. Click the Shared Content button, and then click the Add Content button . Either enter a Web Address or share items from your ePortfolio. Once the resources are added to Shared Content, other users can add the resources to their ePortfolios, or make comments or notes regarding them.
