Direct Linking to Grades K-5 Database Content

 
  • In order to obtain direct links to BCPS database content, you must access the database through the Digital Content tile in BCPS One
  • If you are working in BCPSOne, a link to the Digital Content portal is available under More Resources on the left sidebar. 
  • When clicked by users inside the BCPS network, Direct Links created using the protocols below will automatically authenticate and display. From outside the network, users who click on a direct link will be prompted to input the database's unique remote access user ID and password, and then the linked digital content will display.
  • For tutorials and information about using database features and functionality, visit the Digital Content Snapshot & Support pages. 
  • See also this QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE to Direct Linking & Reading Levels for Grades K-5 Digital Content.  

 


* Please note that if you are adding a link to any of the BrainPOP databases to a Microsoft Office document, spreadsheet or presentation, the direct linking protocol will not work. You will need to save the file as a PDF in order for the direct link to work.  

 

See the examples below: 

 

  • Example of BrainPOP URL displayed in browser: http://www.brainpop.com/science/scientificinquiry/scientificmethod/
  • Example of BrainPOP Direct Link created using Direct Link stem:
