How do I send a page to another instructor?

As an instructor, you can use Direct Share to share individual pages in your course with other instructors at your institution. You can also use Direct Share to copy an individual page into another course. When you share a page, any assets within that page (images, files, etc.) will be included in the shared file.

Notes:  

  • To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
  • Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
