Convert Paper-Based Handbooks to Virtual Binders

All the benefits of going virtual without the confusion.

Graphic with a grey colored 3-ring binder with a red arrow at the bottom on the binder pointing to the right and from left to right across the top of the binder are 4 folders. 1st folder is green with the word Documents in the center. To the right of that is a yellow folder with the word Web Documents in the center. To the right of that is a blue folder with Video in the center. To the right of that is a purple folder with Websites and the last light blue folder says Audio.

Replacing paper-based handbooks with digital folders has its challenges:

Your shared drive may start out neat and orderly, but over time, it can become cluttered.

  • Shared drives can be either too easy to edit or too strict to share with groups of people.
  • Everyone has their own naming conventions, so it’s hard to stay consistent.
  • Nesting folders doesn’t necessarily make it easier to quickly find what you need.

    Why Online Binders Work

    • Intuitive Organization

      Everyone is familiar with how binder tabs organize content. Your files and website URLs are organized in rows of tabs and sub tabs in your binders.

    • You Stay in Control

      Your viewers can't change the order of the tabs or compromise the content you place in your binders.

    • Everyone Sees the Same Thing

      The fixed structure of the binder gives everyone the same consistent access to material knowing everything is in its proper place.

    • Build Confidence

      Your stakeholders can consistently and quickly find what they need.

    LiveBinders was conceptually easy for people to grasp–you can think of it like a physical binder that you put on the internet and use it basically the same way.

    In a large district with 75 schools soon to be 85, LiveBinders will be even more than a tool but a critical component in our ability to stay organized.

    LiveBinders is the easiest way for me to catalogue virtual resources, and the fastest way for colleagues and students to find them.
