Context: This HydroShare resource is a prototype Help page. Since HydroShare is being designed to facilitate social, model and data organization, this resource is a snapshot in time of a Use Case for how HydroShare was used to advance science, education and outreach. Please use the comments below and let me know if this resource was useful to you as an example of how to use HydroShare to run a model.

Steps used to run a Landlab model in HydroShare at the CUAHSI 2016 Landlab Workshop:
1. Go to Collaborate on the HydroShare dashboard
2.'Ask to Join' the Landlab group.
3. Interactive step-- Owners of the Landlab group accepted requests to join the group.
4.Click on the Landlab Group, second tab 'Resources'
5.Scan list of search for Landlab CUAHSI Colloqium 2016 Workshop
6.You are now in what is called a 'collection resource' - scroll down to the Collection Contents and click on Thunder Creek Landlab Landslide Example
7.You are now in what is called a 'generic resource' which contain multiple files - all of Ronda's inputs a Jupyter notebook example. Click on Open With - a blue button on the upper right of the screen.
8.Select Open With Jupyter-HUB NCSA. This takes you to a landing page that is Python code for loading your landlab python notebook.
9.Skip down to the first code cell and run. The output will request your HydroShare user password. This is needed for security because you are running code from a server (currently a development server at USU, in a few days on the NCSA super computer at U of Illinois).
10.Run the next code block which results in generating a link to open your notebook from the HydroShare server.
11. Click on the hyperlink to your notebook to launch. landslide_driver.ipynb
12. Run the model.
