Hapara is transforming how educators can collaborate on units and lessons.
Using the new Public Sharing feature in Hapara Workspace, teachers can elect to share the Workspaces they have created with friends, colleagues, and educators around the world. Hapara-using recipients can then copy the shared Workspace into their own Hapara instance, and customize or modify as needed.
