If you need help submitting your Platform Resource, please contact Molly Kent.
The title should be evocative of the main point(s) of the Platform Resource library/language. It needs to communicate the full context of the Platform Resource on its own as it will show up in places like search returns (e.g. Google) where people won't have any contextual clues.
Name and institution of author(s) of this page and any other appropriate attribution information. If the page is based on materials originally created elsewhere that should be noted with attribution given to the original authors and links provided to the original materials.
For example: This page authored by Jon Smith, Big State University, based on an original activity by Jane Smith, Smallville College.
Email addresses of the activity author(s) separated by commas. These will not be displayed in the activity page but are used for internal tracking.
This text should make it clear what the resource is. It should provide an overview of the it is meant to do and what is needed for successful implementation. The description should be concise and compelling: typically no more than 1-2 very brief paragraphs.
This text should help faculty understand the types of situations for which this Platform Resource is appropriate. This could include modules which utilize this resource or non-module uses.
This section should include the materials needed to implement the Platform Resource (or links and references to those materials). Recommended materials to provide include the Platform Resource itself and user and installer documentation,
For all materials include, in the box below, a brief description of each item
covering what it is and what its role is in the Platform Resource.
If you upload files as part of your activity remember to consider their final use in deciding on appropriate formats.
Materials that other faculty are likely to modify should be provided in easily editable formats (plain text, Word files),
whereas materials that will be likely only used verbatim are most convenient in formats that are universally
readable (PDF format is often a good choice).
Once this form has been submitted we can work with you to integrate the downloadable files into the text of this section.
Please be sure all materials you upload can be freely redistributed. For more information about copyright as it applies to materials you are sharing through this site please check our more detailed discussion (opens in a new window) of this issue.

Choosing the correct file type here will override that.
e.g. 'student_handout'This will be the name of the downloaded file. By default
the system will generate this based on the title you specified and the type of file. If you
specify a name here it will over-ride the automatically generated name. This is generally only
useful when uploading file of a type not recognized by the system (not in the list of
file types above). In that situation choose File Type: Unknown Binary and include the appropriate
suffix in the file name here. e.g. myfile.m3z
Avoid spaces or special characters in the file names.

The original author may also have explicitly stated how it may be reused (e.g. through a creative commons license). You can describe the licensing/reuse situation in the box above.
