I had a go using the project my Year 12 students are working through at the moment.
I also embedded this workspace onto my site so it is easily available for anyone who goes onto my class site.
To be honest, I feel at the moment that I am doing the presentation of resources and activities to the students twice as it is all on my site. "Double handling".
The good thing about the workspace is that I can track the activities a lot easier as the students have to submit via the application so it keeps it all in one space.
