In the top right hand corner of My Resources is a usage bar. This shows how many MB of space you have used. If you have unlimited space, it will show Xmb / unlimited. If your space has been limited, a usage bar will appear to show the percentage of space you have used.
Please note: If you exceed your space allocation, the My Resources tools will disappear. You can get more space by deleting resources that you no longer need. These resources will go into your recycle bin, which you will then need to empty (see below). Please contact your cLc manager if you think you should be allocated more space than you are currently.
The recycle bin is located in the top right hand corner of My Resources. Any resources you delete will go into the recycle bin where they can then be restored back to your My Resources, or deleted completely from the system. Any resources deleted from the recycle bin CANNOT be restored.
There are two different display views of your ‘My Resources’:
There are 2 different ways to adjust your display view.

Each user has a My Homepage folder, in their My Resources. Any pictures or videos that are inserted onto the My Homepage, will automatically be saved in this folder. This ensures that they are embedded in the cLc and can always be viewed.

A Web Feed folder is used to contain any resources that you wish to be able to subscribe to. For example, you may create a podcast mp3 file, which you can then put into a Web Feed folder. If you then publish this folder (using the How do I publish a folder steps above), then any user you publish to will be able to subscribe to your Web Feed. Subscribing to a Web Feed will set up the user's computer ready to either automatically download or create a link to any new/updated content. For more information about Web Feeds, click here
You can either create a new Web Feed folder, or change a current folder into a Web Feed folder:
Creating a new Web Feed folder:
1 Click the add folder icon
2 Enter a label for the folder
3 Enter a description of the folder (optional - this will appear when you hover over the folder icon)
4 Tick the 'Display as feed (RSS/Atom) box
5 Click the 'Add folder' button
Changing a current folder into a Web Feed folder:
1 Click on the folder you wish to change
2 Click the edit folder icon
3 Change the label for the folder (optional)
4 Enter a description of the folder (optional -this will appear when you hover over the folder icon)
5 Tick the 'Display as feed (RSS/Atom box)
6 Click the 'update folder' button
You will see that the folder you have just created has the RSS and Atom icons next to it.
Please note: it is not possible to create subfolders under a Web Feed folder, or to make a folder that has subfolders into a Web Feed folder.
