Links menu block
The Links Menu block provides a home button back to the main Learning Commons page of your site, a link to seach for books in the Learning Commons, a link to an about us page for the Learning Commons, and a link to a Zimbra Calendar of the bookings at the Learning Commons. The links in this block are not editable. The About Us page and the Calendar are the only pages where the content is able to the edited by TLs.
Elem/Mid/Sec District Digital Resources block
This is a link to district-paid-for resources (ERAC). It will remain at the top of the Learning Commons page. At each level, the elementary/middle and secondary TLs chose which resources they wanted to highlight for their students and staff. It is not able to be edited/changed by TLs or changed at each individual site - ONLY BY LEVEL. All Elementary/Middle/Secondary Learning Commons sites share and view the exact same resources.
If Elementary/Middle/Secondary TLs collaboratively decide to change/add ERAC resources they wish to highlight in this block, a system and process needs to be designed to accomodate this among each level of TLs.

Resources Grid & Adding Resources to the Elementary/Middle/Secondary Resource Collaboration page
The Resources Grid is where you are able to interact with students/staff/parents at your school through sharing files, URLs, creating webpages, folders... etc. It is a fast way to add and remove resources for student use. This is the conventional way that you add content to Moodle.
