Sharing Scratch Projects with the Scratch Online Community

By Derek Breen

To allow other Scratch users to view, remix, and add another user’s project to their studio, Sharing must be enabled. Sharing a project makes the project available to all users around the world, so delete any personal information or other elements (spare sprites/blocks/sounds) that strangers shouldn’t see.

If a project is not yet complete, clicking the Draft check box before sharing the project informs the online community that the project is a work in progress.

To share a project from the Scratch Online Editor:

  1. Go to www.scratch.mit.edu and log in.

  2. Click the My Stuff button near the top right of the web page.

  3. Read the information on the far right to tell which projects have been shared. If the project has been shared, the Unshare option is present. If a project has not been shared, the Delete option is present.
