LectureMonkey always made it easy to share a course with everyone in your domain, or to send a “share” to users via their email.
It turns out that for some courses the attendees don’t all belong to a specific domain (or they don’t want to share it with the domain – conferences, schools without an official email address) and no one has a list of attendee email addresses. To make it easy to share LectureMonkey lectures with the attendees we’ve implemented a new “shared Dropbox” capability.
Create a Dropbox account for the course (many professors\students do that anyway nowadays) and link the LectureMonkey recording to that Dropbox.
1. Go to settings
2. Unlink from Dropbox if you are already linked
3. Link to the course’s Dropbox account and record the lecture as usual (you can use the “Private” setting)
The lecture will be stored in the shared Dropbox.
Any user that wants to view the course lectures needs to:
1. Log in to LectureMonkey as usual.
2. Link their LectureMonkey account to the shared Dropbox account.
2a. In the app use the settings screen in the left menu.
2b. On the web – if you are already linked to a different Dropbox, just click “unlink” next to the Dropbox name that shows at the top of the lecture list and Dropbox will ask you to relink).
and the voila – you can see the course’s lectures.
