Blendspace: A Great New Way to Present all your Electronic Resources and Teach a Unit

If you haven't seen the wonderful free online program/website called Blendspace (formerly known as EdCanvas), then jump to it and have a look at it.  www.blendspace.com  and it will change your life and save you time (and your students will love it too!).
For many years, teachers and presenters have been looking for a way to organise, and present, their electronic documents/files in a nice and neat manner for their audience and students to enjoy.
Blendspace does just that!  It is similar to how you can organise your files in OneNote and see the files visually (instead of just seeing filenames).  Teachers can have their whole unit of resources all placed in order into a table and students can access any of the resources quickly and easily.  Teachers sign up free and make the lessons. Then the lessons can be open on the Internet for all to enjoy or teachers can create their own classes and enrol their students into the classes (without students having to do anything but enter a "Class Pin").  Teachers can also track if students have accessed any of the resources and students can comment on the resources etc. etc. etc. The list of great options is endless with this site. Did I mention that teachers can also create quizzes for each of the resources if needed.
This YouTube clip explains it all to you:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICw-MlgPAlI&index=2&list=PLloOJrn8l-eDECpRJ4v-NCbIk6aH9H_St

The created lessons can also be embedded into your LMS (e.g. Fronter VLE) pages, so you can quickly and easily make a great looking page and students can access, and download, all resources from your LMS/VLE.
You can also 'copy' many already-created lessons that have been made by teachers (e.g. WW1, WW2 etc.) and embed them into your Fronter VLE page (saving yourself a lot of hard work)!
