View an Item

When you add an item from Destiny Discover™, the Internet, Google Drive™ or Microsoft® OneDrive, it automatically appears in your collection. For each item, its title, type, description, tags and URL (if the item is a weblink) are also auto-populated.

There are three ways to view an item:


  • Staggered view is the default view for all items in a collection.
  • Logged-in users will see items in staggered view, grid view or list view for every collection until they change views.

  • The "More Options" icon More Options icon. appears in the item's header. If it is a private collection, you will also see the "Drag and Drop" icon " ".
  • When an item is marked "For Instructor Use Only", the For instructor use only icon appears. Only users with instructor roles can see this icon.
