Subscriptions allow sharing content between organizations.

Notes

Setting up subscriptions that allow sharing content between organizations requires collaboration between a content provider, a subscriber, and Agilix Support.

  • The subscriber is the organization that would like to borrow content.
  • The content provider is the organization that will share that content.
  • Organizations can only share content if:
    • The content is located in the content provider’s Agilix domain.
    • The subscriber is an Agilix customer with a current customer domain.
    • An agreement exists between parties, permitting content sharing.

1. The subscriber requests domain access for the content provider

First, the content provider needs access to the subscriber's domain in order issue a subscription. To ensure security, the subscriber must ask Agilix Support to grant them this access.

To request domain access for the content provider, the subscriber must provide Agilix Support with:

  • The subscriber’s domain name and ID.
  • The content provider contact’s user name and ID.

Example request

Please provide [INSERT: content provider contact’s user name and ID] access to [INSERT: subscriber domain name and ID], so they can share content with our organization.

2. Agilix Support notifies both parties when access is granted

Agilix can give the content provider access to the subscriber's domain, but this is not the final step.

3. The content provider issues a subscription

Once they have access to the subscriber's domain, the content provider can issue a subscription to the subscriber’s entire domain or to select users within that domain. To learn more visit Manage Subscribers.

4. The subscriber accesses content in their Digital Library

When signed in as a teacher, the subscriber should see the content provider’s domain in their Digital Library alongside content providers like Khan Academy and OpenEd.

Tips

  • You can create subscriptions for content within your organization without Agilix's help.
  • Domain subscriptions are inherited by subdomains and courses.
