Here's everything you need to know about the My Learning/My Documents page:
What's it for? It lets you view and work with everything you do on the site, including the learning you've done and the documents you've created.
How to I get back to the home page? Click the R at the top left of the page, or click the Home link.
How do I rewordify something? Click the R at the top left of the page, or click the Home link.
What's the "My progress charts" button for? You can see color charts of your reading and learning progress. In order to see any charts, you must have read for at least a minute on the site, and/or started a Learning Session. Learn more about charts.
What's the "My Learning" button for? That shows you three things:
1) The Words I've learned section shows you the words you've learned by completing a Learning Session.
2) The Words I'm learning section show you the words that you've started a Learning Session for, but haven't finished learning yet. The site remembers exactly where you left off; click any word, and you'll be brought back to where you were when you stopped that learning session. When you learn a word, the word moves from this section to the top Words I've learned section.
3) The Words I want to learn section shows you words you've manually selected to learn by clicking on them while you're reading rewordified text and selecting "+ learn this word later" in the popup box. To learn these words, click on one of the buttons at the top of the list. They'll then move from this part to the Words I'm learning section.
So, how do I learn words? Two ways: 1) While you read rewordified text, click on one of the buttons in the purple bar that appears in the top of the page. -OR- 2) Click a highlighted, rewordified word, and select "+ learn this word later." Then, click on the My Learning/My Documents page, scroll down to the Words I want to learn section, and click one of the buttons near the top of that section.
What's the "History" button for? After you log in, the site remembers every block of text you rewordify, and lists them in your History tab. Why? For your convenience: you can review the text blocks you've rewordified and share any of them at any time. To review and optionally share a document in your History, just click it and click the Share button at the top of the text. To delete one or more of the History entries, use the checkboxes on the left of each entry.
What's the "Documents" button for? This button shows you every document that you've shared, either publicly, as a "link-only" document, or as a password-protected document. How to create and share a document. To view, edit, and change the share type of a document, click its blue link. To delete documents, use the checkboxes. Note: You cannot delete a document if it's part of a book. If a document is part of a book, you have to remove it from the book first (see below).
So, how do I share a document? Rewordify some text, or click an entry in the History tab. Then, click the Share button at the top of the rewordified text and follow the instructions.
What's the "Books" button for? That button lets you group two or more publicly-shared documents together, so that they read like a book with chapters. The site automatically creates a table of contents. Why? For the convenience of readers.
Example: You teach a history class. You want to put together a collection of excerpts from presidential speeches. Let's say that you rewordified ten of them and shared each of the ten as a public document. You can create a book and select all ten to be included in the book. You call the book Presidential Speech Collection. Now, your students can search for the term Speech Collection, easily find the book, and navigate through it, complete with a table of contents.
So, how do I create a book? First, rewordify and share at least two documents as public documents. You can't include "link-only" or password-protected documents within books. Then, click on the Books button and follow the instructions.
What else do I need to know about books? Here are some random but important facts about books on Rewordify.com:
A book must have at least two documents.
When you delete a book, you do not delete the documents within it. You only delete the grouping of those documents into a book. Once you include a publicly-shared document in a book, you can't change its share type. To change it (for example) from a shared document to a password-protected document, you must first remove it from the book that it's a part of.
A particular document can only be part of one book; a document cannot exist in two or more books.
What's the "Account Control" button for? It's pretty self-explanatory. Click the button and read the instructions.
