Sharing Content: What this means for your learning

In Get More Brain, you can share content with others. You can also copy individual content to your notebook and add your own content there.

This sounds obvious, but it’s not!

When you read a printed book while learning, you don’t have this option. If you want to share content with someone, you have to re-write it or scan it by taking a picture. Even if the book is available as an e‑book, it is often difficult to copy individual elements of the content from the e‑book and use them in another app.

In Get More Brain, sharing content is explicitly allowed. For us, it is the core of learning that you continue to work with content, discuss it with others, add your own thoughts and ideas to it. That’s why the content in Get More Brain is modular. You don’t have to copy an entire chapter. You can use and work with individual passages, images, videos or quizzes.

You may wonder about copyright protection. Don’t worry, we’ve taken care of that: if you share a piece of content in Get More Brain with someone who doesn’t own the title, he or she will be taken directly to the Academy, where the title can be purchased. Only then can the shared content be edited.

Sharing individual content is important for learning.

Sharing single Bits

All learning content in Get More Brain is modular. You can share individual sections, images, videos or quizzes with your learning partners or save them in your personal notebooks. There you can add your own content or make detailed notes.

  1. Go to the Dot Menu of a Bit
  2. Choose ‘Send’ or ‘Save to Notebook’
  3. Choose a Contact or a Notebook to send the bit to.
It’s easy to send any content to a Contact or add it to one of your Notebooks.

Sharing multiple Bits with the Basket

If you want to send not just one, but several Bits to one of your contacts or save them to a notebook, Get More Brain has a handy feature for that: the Basket.

  1. Go to the Dot Menu of a Bit
  2. Choose ‘Add to Basket’
  3. Go to another Bit and repeat the steps

This way you can store as many individual Bits as you like in the basket, a kind of clipboard. The Bits are saved one after the other. You can also merge Bits from different learning contents in the basket.

Add and edit annotations

When reading or watching your content, you can create Notes, Favorites and Bookmarks. These remain stored with your content.

💡 Favorites, Notes and Bookmarks are convenient tools to annotate your learning content. That said, there is another way to create annotations. You can copy one or more bits into a personal Notebook. You can also use annotations there. But you have many more options because you can also create and add your own content in your Notebooks. It’s also possible to share notes from your Notebook with your Contacts. This feature is not offered by the simple Favorites, Notes and Bookmarks in the Library.
