After finding items of interest, add

[00:00:23.829]
them to existing folders

[00:00:28.440]
or create new locations to house

[00:00:30.890]
the materials.

[00:00:33.240]
Items you save include any introductions

[00:00:35.630]
and annotations you add to the content,

[00:00:37.880]
so you can construct hubs of customized

[00:00:40.130]
readings, discussion prompts and

[00:00:42.270]
assignments for your classes.

[00:00:45.439]
