LibPaths is made up of two major components - LibPaths Editor and LibPaths PortalHub. Together these components deliver a set of tools that allow you to build a library of teaching and learning portals containing information targeted to specific groups of students, teachers, and your school community.

Each portal can contain multiple portlets (small windows) of information relevant to the target student, teacher, or community group. It empowers you to proactively prepare teaching and learning resources to support teachers and students. LibPaths can be the home page or landing page for students and/or teachers or portals can be embedded into other internet services such as a learning management system.

Note: LibPaths is an optional subscription service that extends the functionality of Infiniti LibBase. Schools subscribing to LibPaths also have access to a collection of portals in LibPaths PortalHub that have been designed to support teaching and learning in K-12 schools.

LibPaths Structure

LibPaths is used to build and manage a set of multiple portals consisting of:

  • one or more small windows (portlets) on each portal,
  • snippets of information (widgets) within each portlet,
  • portlets displayed in a variety of layouts,
  • tools to create your own attractive presentations,
  • tools to import portals professionally created by subject experts,
  • tools to manage targeted sharing (who sees what) of portals,
  • tools to manage time related sharing (when do they see it) of portals.

Portals are designed to deliver specific and relevant teaching and learning materials to students' and teachers' devices in sync with the teaching timetable throughout the academic year.

Each portal can be scheduled to automatically be available in sync with each student's curriculum path for the academic year. This results in portals dynamically cycling, between visibility and non-visibility throughout the year, as a set of tabs across the top of the connected student's home pageThis ensures students and teachers only see the portals which match the units of work they are studying at that time of the year. 

Portals can be similarly created and dynamically displayed for individual teachers of for groups of teachers giving each teacher instant access to relevant teaching materials.
