Adding Your Content to the Gallery

The Gallery tab is an excellent utility with thousands of resources free for you to use in your lessons or presentations. You can browse and search the Gallery and, with a few presses and drags, add content to your pages. (I discuss the Gallery in much more detail in Chapter 10.)

Another cool functionality the Gallery has built in is something called the My Content folder, which is a holding space for all the content that you find yourself using over and over. So, instead of looking for it in the main Gallery, you can move it to your own folder. You can import content from other files or the Internet into your My Content folder. You also can share the file with your colleagues and enable them to contribute to it.

If you have something in the folder, the subcategories open, as shown in Figure 9-5.
