How do I use Direct Share to send an assignment to another instructor?
As an instructor, you can use Direct Share to share individual assignments in your course with other instructors at your institution. You can also use Direct Share to copy an individual assignment into another course. When you share an assignment, any assets within that assignment (images, files, etc.) will be included in the shared file.
- Direct Share requires the Direct Share feature option, which can be enabled for an entire account.
- To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
