We discussed the benefits of using My Big Campus (MBC), logging in, and setting up Groups in Post 1. In Post 2, we explored setting up assignments and “Schoolwork”. In this post, we will dive into Bundles.
What is a Bundle?
Bundles are collections of content, such as a unit or a lesson, that is created and published online for students to interact with. Bundles can also be used as templates because they are easy to share.
You can place text, videos, links, apps, and much more within your bundle.
You can also search the MBC Library for Bundles created by educators, and adapt it for your class.
Benefits of working in Bundles
Bundles can be created collaboratively, published, and easily shared with colleagues. Common Core standards can be incorporated into learning tasks, and published in Bundles.
How to Create a Bundle
To get started, click Drive in the left navigation bar.
In the top navigation on the Bundles page, click New, and select New Bundle.
Give your bundle a title, an introduction, and a summary, then click Save before continuing to the next step.

- The Library
Here are a few diverse examples of Bundles found in the Library:
- AP Physics — This bundle hosts the entire quarter of learning, and when you click the chapter, it takes you to the lessons within the chapter
- Earth Science — This bundle hosts videos for a “flipped classroom” approach
- Telling Time — This bundle is a lesson that walks students through it in steps
- Chromebooks and Chrome Web Store — I created this bundle for professional development.
Bundles are a great way to organize online lessons. I’d like to hear how you plan to use bundles in your class.
In our next post, we will explore how to add YouTube videos to the Library, and QuickLinks.

Note: I chose to create this class as a blog post instead of within MBC because I wanted this information more visible to our AJUSD family.
