Once your lesson is ready to share, you can easily share it in i3LEARNHUB by using a simple code that students need to enter on the i3LEARNHUB Connect  website.

Share the lesson code you've created with your students. They don't need to install anything, they just need to use the i3LEARNHUB Connect website in order to open the shared lesson:  http://connect.i3learnhub.com
