The toolbox is a folder or category which is available from within the ClassConnect App. It’s useful for adding Apps and resources that will be accessed regularly. The default toolbox includes the online Q-Files Encyclopaedia, access to the home folder of the logged in user and access to handouts from the teacher. The toolbox can be customised with different resources to suit each school’s needs.
