What is a 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.

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.

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 the Digital Content Repository, which allows users to share content with other members. Click the Manage 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 the Repository, other users can rate the resources, or make comments or notes regarding them.
