How do I use Direct Share to copy a quiz to another course?

As an instructor, you can use Direct Share to copy individual quizzes in one course directly into another course in which you are enrolled. Direct Share also allows you to send quizzes to other instructors at your institution. When you copy a quiz, any assets within that quiz (images, files, etc.) will be included in your quiz copy.

Notes:  

  • 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.
  • Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
  • If you copy the same quiz to the same course more than once, Direct Share will overwrite the quiz you previously copied with the newly copied quiz.
