Creating a link to share lesson files

Sharing using a link enables you to easily share your lesson files with other teachers. It also enables you to send out copies of your SMART Notebook lessons so that students can review the lesson at home. Sending a link to a file is particularly useful for sharing large files, or if you want to save your files to your SMART Learning Suite Online lesson library.

If another teacher shares a link with you, when you click on the link, you’ll have the option to either download the file, or save it to your SMART Learning Suite Online lesson library.


Saving lesson files to the SMART Learning Suite Online (SLSO) lesson library is like saving files to a cloud drive, similar to how you might save files to a Google Drive or OneDrive account. It enables you to save your files to an online location and then access those files from any device once you sign in to SLSO using your SMART account credentials. To learn more, see .
